The Fulani people are the largest and most widely distributed nomadic people of Africa. Highly skilled jewelers, their jewelry was, at one time, a form of currency. The Fulani cuff, or kwotene kange, is a centuries old design once forged from pure gold and the ultimate symbol of wealth. Over time, as access to gold became scarce, the Fulani adapted their design to a more available metal: brass. Featured here is a traditional kwotene kange plated with 24K gold. Adjustable design.
