Fulani Earrings


Fulani earrings originated from the Fulani people who can now be found in many West African countries, but mainly in Nigeria, Ghana, and Mali. Our earrings were made by those in Mali. The Fulani have afforded the world these beautiful art-form earrings that are treasures to many Africans, and now loved the world over.

Authentic Fulani earrings were hand pounded in gold, silver, brass or aluminum. As part of the process, they were known to dust the brass or gold tone with gold dust to give it that special African yellowish color. In fact, many jewelers also dusted the silvery ones, to enable the capability of wearing both silver and gold tone jewelry at the same time! It's an African thing!!

Sizes and tones vary from jeweler to jeweler. In the olden days, the tone of the earrings (darker, brighter) could be seen as a signature, guiding one at the market to the jeweler of one's choice. The size variations was the result of their being hand made.

                                Welcome again. You are so awesome to shop here!

Authentic Fulani earrings are difficult to obtain and therefore we may not have all sizes and colors available at all times. Please call or contact us, when in doubt.

We sell from stock and as explained above, there may be size, color and tone variations. Brass and gold tone are used interchangeably. 

Our Fulani earrings, as they are traditional in nature, come with what some may consider as- rough crafting, groves and bends- the very characteristics the Fulani people may use to authenticate the earrings they buy. They can be seen all day manipulating, straightening and/or otherwise interacting with the earrings. And so when we shop for you, we also look for same rough edges to authenticate our picks. 

Enjoy. We love that you love our jewelry and artworks.

Welcome to the jewelry section and prepare yourself to be wowed. We do African 

Art and jewelry right! 
 
As your specialist, we took actions years ago which we now believe spearheaded the current worldwide fever pitch interest in African jewelry. It is true that African jewelry can be traced to ancient times, but outside of Africa, its knowledge and appreciation were relegated to a few historical and archaeological books and the curious at obscure museum sections. We wanted to change this situation and set out to bring wonderful African jewelry directly to your attention. We were certain you would forever be transcended once you experienced this kind of jewelry. Your actions have proven us right.
 
From our vantage charming West (Greenwich) Village location in New York, hub for art, culture, designers and tourists, we first showcased traditional pieces - Ankalari, Tuareg, Fulani, Ndugbom, Kazuri, Akosu, lost wax bronzes, Bodom and other trade beads. These are always fascinating and were well received.
 
But the real show and buzz began when our designers started creating spectacular pieces by "marrying" the old and the new, adding international accessories. Their creations produced stunning fashionable and contemporary looks that widened wearability. Celebrities and fashion models got into the act and the rest, as they say, is history. African jewelry is now worn everywhere. In fact, its authenticity, cultural history, versatility and beauty and also because it is handmade, makes it the jewelry of choice for many. It is also ecofriendly, eco chic and rock stars (gem stones) make command and ecstatic appearances. It appears African jewelry has stepped out of musty old books to the attention of a welcoming and appreciative international audience. Your response has validated our efforts.
 
As your leader we will continue to create waves that others will struggle to ride and we want you to turn to us every time you think of purchasing fantastic African jewelry!
 
Authentic African jewelry may be bold, at Ashione Gallery we say, the bolder the better (without meaning to, you make yourself the center of magical attention!); the more colorful, the more desired (old Africans used color to attract the gods); the heavier, the more royal [(royalty and other leaders used to wear their jewelry in heavy chunks (treasures!)]; the more aged, the more ancestral (age cracks and insect trappings are quite common); the more asymmetric, the more empowering; the more mismatched, the more interesting (because everything is handmade and created from cuts of natural materials, there may be variations, even in earrings!). Besides, only the gods are perfect and Africans did not wish to compete with the gods by seeking perfection in material things!
 
There is no jewelry quite like African jewelry! It is hot, hip, trend setting, luxurious, elegant, beautiful, and always happening!! It is Africa!! Shop to buy, now!!!
