Large Amazigh (Berber) pendants are traditionally worn suspended from a headpiece at the sides of the face, something like large earrings. Mixed metals are a tarnished silvery color. Nicely made pendants are about 4.5 inches long and about 2.5 inches wide. Lovely and lightweight.
The Berber people, or Amazigh as they call themselves are an ethnic group of several nations indigenous mostly to North Africa and in some northern parts of Western Africa - Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania, northern Mali, northern Niger, and a small part of western Egypt.
