Symbolic Hand-Crafted Stud Earrings from Ghana
These unique sterling silver stud earrings are more than just an accessory – they are steeped in Ghanaian symbolism and culture. The fofoo plant, which is represented on the earrings, has a special meaning in Akan culture. The saying "se die fofoo pe, ne se gyinantwi abo bedie" relates to the plant's desire for gyinantwi seeds to turn black, which is likened to the behavior of a jealous person.
The Adinkra symbols, including the fofoo plant, are widely used within the Ashanti culture. They serve both a decorative function and represent objects that encapsulate evocative messages conveying traditional wisdom, aspects of life, or the environment.
The earrings are approximately 0.4 inches (1 cm) in diameter.
