Like clothing, jewelry has a special place in the representation of African culture, not only as ostentation or decoration but for the strong symbolism that is tied to it, as the tribes attach great importance to the jewels, since they are used in many of their rituals, marital dances, and even as decoration during sentimental courtship.
Traditionally African Jewelry is composed of a variety of materials, ranging from bones, feathers, teeth and even skulls of small animals, which when combined with minerals, metals and semi precious stones give shape to the most typical accessories of culture.
It is worth emphasizing that the African tribes always had a predilection for blue stone, although it is quite common to find within the great variety of jewels, objects that include quartz, carnelian, yellow amber and corals
