Kanko Necklace

$145.00

Expected Ship Date: Nov 4th

The Kanko Necklace is the quintessential Kanko Collection piece. Reminiscent of sika (translated to money in the Akan language), which is used to trade and barter (get your money girl!). The raised Sankofa symbol adds dimension and depth. Styles well stacked with our Kanko Origin Necklace or our Kanko Hoops.

      OUR INSPIRATION

      OUR HERITAGE
      Inspired by Ghana and her childhood, Elysia wanted to honor the tradition of her grandmother piercing her and her cousins’ ears when she was young, at home in Ghana. Jewelry is often passed down from generation to generation, like traditions, and Elysia hopes to continue her grandmother’s traditions and legacy by introducing this line of demi-fine jewelry for women all over the world to wear and connect with their homes and heritage.

      SYMBOLISM & HISTORY
      The West African Adinkra symbol that takes the spotlight for this collection is Sankofa. The word Sankofa directly translates to ‘go back and get it’, which represents celebrating your journey and how far you’ve come but never forgetting where you came from.
