Fulani Earrings

Fulani

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.
