An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment
This is a pair of Mauritanian bangles, Ive only ever seen slimmer ones. Probably mid 20th C. Very much a pre Saharan style

Well ebony is a very hard wood that does not float in water, making it ideal for ornaments and jewellery. It was often used in this sort of Mauritanian/Tuareg type of jewel so I am assuming it is ebony.
