The African Akan disc necklace is a piece of jewelry that has been crafted for over 4000 years, inspired by a traditional design worn by West African women. It is an example of the visually and technologically sophisticated ornamentation that reflects the lifestyle, family and status of its wearer.
Gold amulets were worn not only by kings and chiefs, but their subjects and slaves as well, symbolizing the power and prestige of the entire community. Today, much of African jewelry continues to hold its ceremonial meaning.
