AFRICAN

African body ornaments often reflect a person's life style, family situation and status. In West Africa gold jewelry was 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 Africa's jewelry still retains its ceremonial significance today.

Materials: pewter with antique gold finish. Post back earring.
