The Fulani tribe of Africa is well known for their traditional jewelry, especially their extra large gold earrings which can be up to 5 inches (12.7cm) long! Fulani women adorn themselves with all kinds of jewelry including earrings (also called kwottone kanye), rings, bangles, and necklaces usually made out of gold or silver.

Traditionally the Fulani, who are a nomadic tribe, wear their wealth in the form of jewelry so that they can carry it with them where ever they go. As is true with most tribal African jewelry the tribe regards jewelry as a symbol of wealth and status
