Machiko is a Japanese name that means “fortunate one”.
This Tuareg black onyx necklace features a classic combination of elements that make this a sophisticated yet striking piece of jewellery.
Tuareg jewellery is traditionally made from silver, the metal of the Prophet, and more recently local artisans have experimented with incorporating stones into their designs. Here, it is paired with Black Onyx which is regarded as a protective stone that absorbs and transforms negative energy, and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy. It assists in developing emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when support is needed during times of stress, confusion or grief. It is also said to foster wise decision-making.
Ethiopian silver beads are interspersed amongst the black onyx to give an added touch of sparkle. Wear the Machiko necklace anytime of the day, on top of a classic white tee, your favourite black dress or even when you want to exude that extra sense of confidence during business encounters. Whichever way, there is a lot of versatility embedded in this Tuareg black onyx necklace.
