About Friendship Rings.
The seven rings may be given to demonstrate love or friendship; the purchaser for mystical or lucky purposes may also wear them.
In many parts of the world the number SEVEN is endowed with mystical qualities surpassing those of all others, in parts of Africa, too, SEVEN is a powerful number.
Some African perspectives:
In the Dogon (middle Niger River) cosmology it is the spirit of the SEVENTH of the eight ancestors who is the chief architect of world order.
A mask of the Guru (Côte d 'Ivoire) has numerous scarifications (small flesh cuts that leave raised scars). There are sets of three scars and sets of four â€“ being respectively male and female numbers. These sets of scarifications each, as a group, total seven. This is clearly deliberate, for in the description of this mask it is stated that seven is the number that represents sexual completeness
....... the procedure a man must follow when he vows to devote his life to love ... the magician takes him to a lonely spot where the hyenas live, there to invoke the appropriate spirits, chanting the invocation SEVEN times as he swings a magical bag over the love seeker’s head. Then he beats the supplicant SEVEN times on the buttock with the magical bag.
THE SEVEN RINGS - plain, braided or ethnic - fuse Afro/Euro beliefs.
