Sankofa (return and get it) Necklace
Among the continents of the world, Africa stands out as one deeply rooted and rich in cultural heritage and beliefs. This symbol, which originates from Ghana, is a unique representation of cultural expressions, ideas and values. It expresses traditional wisdom, aspects of life or the environment.
Sankofa teaches you to go back to your roots in order to move forward. You need to go back to gather the best of what your past has taught you, so that you can achieve your full potential as you move forward. Whatever you have lost or forgotten can be reclaimed, revived and preserved. Essentially every experience in life should leave you wiser even if it was a bad experience.
This item comes with a 40, 45 or 50cm chain; please select your preferred length.
The pendant is a 15mm round Sterling Silver disc; 1mm in thickness; and engraved with an image of the Sankofa symbol. At the back it has the inscription ‘Sankofa’. It has a polished finish.
There are also “care instructions” for looking after this personal pendant, to help ensure it lasts a very long time.
The pendant and sentiment card will arrive beautifully presented in one of our craft envelope jewellery gift boxes, complete with bow and To/From tag.
♥ Caring for your jewellery
Genuine sterling silver naturally tarnishes over time. To protect your jewellery, I recommend removing them when showering, bathing or swimming.
Avoid spraying perfume or applying creams directly to your jewellery.
Use a soft, lint-free polish cloth to keep your jewellery looking beautiful.
Store your jewellery in an airtight bag to help reduce any tarnishing.
