These beautiful and stylish brass rings are handmade by a local artisan in Ghana. The more brass rings you wear on one or both hands, the better. The majority of the rings represent Adinkra symbols – originated from the Akan in Ghana. The symbols have decorative function but also deliver a message that conveys traditional meaning.
All rings are adjustable. Brass darkens after a while and can be polished with lemon juice or brass polisher.
Here is the meaning of the available symbols:
- Gye Nyame – expresses the omnipotence of God. Gye Nyame is the most popular Adinkra symbol. It reflects the faith of the Akan people, to see God’s involvement in every aspect of human life.
