Afar women ,by Nefes.

Afar women wear their jewelry both as a display of their wealth and as adornments of beauty, most notably on special occasions such as their wedding day.

As a result of trade, some of the jewelry worn by Afar women comes from as far away as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan, and India.

Additionally, these highly prized items are sometimes used as commodities for bartering purposes.
