Ethnic jewellery no longer fulfils only its original symbolism even if it is still made by small local craftsmen from all over the world. They have become true fashion accessories and those who wear them also see them as a way to stand out.


Today the choice in ethnic jewellery is immense and there is something for every taste and every style of clothing. We like to wear them because they are original, atypical and they are made of natural materials, which is in the air of time. Originally it is necessary to know that they were handmade creations, meticulously refined by craftsmen of different ethnic groups and tribes. The traditional ethnic jewelry was the reflection of a type of culture, rites, an ancestral way of life that was transmitted from generation to generation. Each ethnic group had its own fashion of ethnic jewellery and cultivated it through the talents of its craftsmen. Whether in Africa, Asia or the East, civilizations have all developed models of ethnic jewellery that also had the function of distinguishing them from each other.


Originally, ethnic jewels all have a soul, a history that corresponds to ancestral roots and customs. They are handcrafted from natural materials and more or less noble metals. They were often made of gold or solid silver depending on the social status of the person wearing them. Today, they have also become fashion accessories of varying quality and price. Traditional ethnic jewellery sold through fair trade is made from quality natural materials by artisans who are paid a fair price.


It is important to choose traditional ethnic jewellery that is of high quality and carefully crafted. Each piece is a work of art in itself that holds a particular symbolism that translates into specific patterns, shapes and colours. Each ethnic group and tribe is different in the jewellery they make. The traditional ethnic jewel is not only a bearer of values, but it is also said to possess a true soul that is born through the work of the craftsman who creates it and that is perpetuated in the person who wears it
