A Tuareg cross is a symbolic piece of jewelry passed from father to son among the Tuareg tribes in Northern Africa. The Tuareg are a nomadic culture, so the Tuareg cross symbolizes all four corners of the world, indicating that the wearer does not know where he will die.

A Tuareg cross is almost always made of silver, which is considered the metal of the Prophet Muhammad.
