African Fulani tribal earrings. These big bold gold mixed metal alloy earrings are an original design of the Fulani people from Mali. The Fulani people are the largest nomadic tribe in the world who migrated east of the Sahara several thousand years ago and heavily populated Sub-Saharan Africa. They were known traditionally to wear their riches in their adornments that they carried with them at all times. “Fulani earrings and bracelets have been a tradition of the Fulani people for centuries and women of the royal class wore them in solid gold as a sign of wealth and nobility. They each have a unique twist which in the native Fulani language is called bhoylé for the earrings which have a wider twist and moullé for the bracelets which have a tighter twist. The more gold and jewelry a Fulani woman had the more wealth she had.
These earrings are in stock in limited quantities. They are available in either mixed alloy gold and silver.
