About African Jewelry.

Owning a piece of African jewelry is more than owning a piece of jewelry its possessing a world of culture and history in its own beautiful form. Even though there is history and meaning behind each piece, it’s the art in the jewelry that grabs the attention of most collectors.

African jewelry is an ancient and time honored art form that reflects the art of African heritage, culture and history. There are several artistic, religious, spiritual and cultural elements of African heritage visible in each uniquely crafted piece of jewelry.

Around the turn of the 10th century, when bronze work was common, crafting these pieces became more intricate. Bronze pieces were normally decorated with ivory or precious stones and several of these pieces were identified with royalty. Beads have also played a very important role in African culture and can be seen today in many of the beautiful pieces of jewelry created by the skilled craftsmen who make them.

Modern African pieces still remain true to the same historic values and meanings of the past. These values represent different elements of African culture and reveal the importance of each piece of jewelry, which in turn makes them so special to collectors and art lovers everywhere.

The history and meaning of each piece of jewelry is unique. It is said that owning one of these pieces provides hope, wisdom and well-being to its owner. So start your own ‘art’ collection today.

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 – 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

Kenya:

....... 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.
