Our descendants dealt directly in mining stones and the level of professionalism and the reputation our family established in mining has been handed done the generations. It is the foundation on which African Galleria was founded.
African Galleria has an in-house lapidary, where stones are cut and polished. Each stone is graded and catalogued, with its own fingerprint/certification.
Our collection of Jewellery includes a huge variety of semi precious stones and quartz. Workmanship is of the highest quality and the styles and designs are classical and sophisticated.
Our huge variety of gemstones and quartz available offers almost every colour under the sun.
Treat your loved ones to a unique piece of jewellery from African Galleria. All our pieces come with certified authenticity and make the ultimate gift. A piece of warmth and colour, all the way from TANZANIA. We also have a vast collection of costume and ethnic jewellery to suit every taste.
Tanzania and East Africa have long been associated with its extensive array of woodcarvings and sculptures synonymous with its culture. At African Galleria we have sourced the very best, providing you with an extensive collection including masks, figurines, animal carvings capturing the elegance and beauty of Africa’s wildlife, busts, profiles and the most intricate, interweaved studies!
The styles and themes greatly vary according to the ‘creators,’ their tribe, location, surrounding environment, culture and beliefs.
Our collections of stone sculptures are as intricate as they are unique.
Our enormous collection of artefacts bring alive the essence of tribal life, the kaleidoscope of cultures, and the immense bank of talent and imagination amongst the people of Tanzania and East Africa.
Artefacts include genuine pieces such as spears, drums and other tribal relics, as well extraordinary pieces of work devised to complement our modern lives. All thought up and brilliantly created by local talent.
Our ethnic Christmas decorations bring a delightful perspective to tree decorations and the nativity scene… and what boy wouldn’t want a model car completely weaved out of wire? Tyres, steering wheel and ALL! Our artefacts reach as far as your imagination does.

Cloth is another natural palette on which artists in Africa love to express themselves.
Dyes made from natural resources such as soil & plants have been used since the beginning of mankind – whose roots lie in Africa. Tribal garments proudly created and so vivid and vibrant; combined beautifully with the style & finesse of materials that reached our shores, at the birth of trade between the Far East and us centuries ago.
East Africa creates some of the most stunning weaves to be found.
