The traditional African elephant hair bangle embodies the bull elephant’s strength, courage, and wisdom. It is worn as a mark of prestige and given as a gift of love, brotherhood and good luck. Today, authentic elephant tail hair bangles are less sought-after due to conservation efforts. Fortunately, the modern version of this iconic bangle from the house of Patrick Mavros is hand crafted in pure sterling silver, an ingenious piece of workmanship in itself and is a treasure to be envied anywhere. Forbes Mavros designed the Mavros three-strand silver elephant hair bangle to incorporate a distinctive crossover section or ‘medallion’ between two pairs of intricate knots, which slide to allow the wearer to put the bangle on and then adjust its diameter to fit as snugly as desired. The decorative knots follow the identical technique used by the original craftsmen of long ago. Each of the silver strands has the same thickness and oval shaped cross-section as real elephant tail hair. Handmade in Mauritius and hallmarked by Mavros, each bangle is shipped in its own presentation box.
