Afghan Tribal Arts has an extensive collection of tribal jewelry from Afghanistan and the region. This listing will take you to the rings we have listed on Etsy. Most are big, chunky rings with a semi-precious stone and are from the 1970’s or older. Islamic tradition allows women to wear jewelry, especially as a form of insurance against hard times. Dowries are the beginning of a lifetime collection. But, men are discouraged from wearing jewelry as it might encourage vanity. Silver rings, however, are allowed. So, many of the rings we carry were probably designed for men, although anyone can wear them, of course.

Some of the rings could have been used as signets as they have carved symbols that could be embedded in wax. The ones with text are usually a blessing or protection.

Afghan Tribal Arts has been importing directly from Afghanistan and the region since the early 80’s. The core of the business has centered on natural hand carved beads from semi-precious stones. Abdul Wardak, the owner, travels a bead show route from Wisconsin to Florida, but is hoping to travel less and sell more online. The shop on Etsy is managed by Rachel Biel, located in Paducah, Kentucky, USA.

Afghan Tribal Arts also has a retail location, Sturee Tribal Village in Pendleton, South Carolina. If you are on Facebook, you can get updates from both:

We offer free shipping in the US on orders over $100 and can combine purchases from our shop here on Artizan and on Etsy. We will also discount shipping on large orders out of the US on a case by case basis.
