Our primitve collection is a contemporary mix of hand forged, oxidized silver embellished with solid 18k gold details. This bracelet is made of oxidized sterling silver featuring 18K gold studs, bezel set garnets, and diamonds.
The bracelet design itself is a replica of an ancient African currency bracelet - just one of a variety of metal objects used in traditional Africa to trade and store wealth. These pieces might be used for major purchases (of land or animals) or to signify a transfer of wealth at major events, such as birth, coming of age, marriage, or death. The most frequent use was as bridewealth, to compensate a family for the loss of a daughter. Most forms were developed from traditional metal objects that were already in use such as weapons, tools, bracelets and anklets.
