Elephant Hair Gold Bangle (Men)

As a token of prestige, the ancient craftsmen of Africa fashioned a handsome bangle from the long, tough hairs of an elephant’s tail. Now Forbes Mavros has created a sumptuous version in gold of the iconic elephant hair bangle, featuring a double twist in the centre and four intricate sliding knots. Just as iconic, even more prestigious…

The Definitive Luxury Brand From Africa

These bangles reflected the power and majesty of the mighty African elephant, and were therefore given as gifts of love and brotherhood, and believed to bring good luck, virility and wisdom to the wearer. Now the beauty of this age-old design has been captured and renewed by Forbes Mavros, who replicated the shape and thickness of an actual elephant’s tail hair and created a new version crafted out of hand-drawn strands of pure 18ct gold
