A pair of crescent-shaped earrings inspired by West African body ornaments.
Visually striking and technically sophisticated, West African body ornaments often reflected a person's lifestyle, family situation and status. Amulets were also worn as protection against evil and to appease the gods.
However, gold jewellery was only worn by kings and chiefs as well as their subjects and slaves. This served as a visual demonstration of the prestigious position and power of the tribal leaders and the community as a whole. Much of West Africa's jewellery still retains its ceremonial significance today.
Ideal as a gift, these earrings are made from brass with a gold finish.
