Traditional diamond jewelry in Kairouan Medina

by LitDoc Online Now Sep 20, 2007 at 8:39 AM

Hi all,
This morning I saw some spectacular (and fairly costly) jewelry in the Kairouan souk that I was told by a Tunisian friend is of a type owned by all Tunisian families, and is an heirloom passed down from mother to daughter.

The jewelry was made of 9 carat yellow gold, and set with rough brownish diamonds.

Can anyone give me information about the jewelry I describe above?
Thanks so much,
