"Forever close to my heart"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a very beautiful piece of jewelry! Since finding out that a majority of my DNA comes from Ghana and Nigeria I wanted to support the artist there. I also wanted a piece of a place I’ve never been to in an effort to feel connected to my roots while also remembering the meaning behind the Sankofa. I absolutely love this finely crafted piece of jewelry and i wear it close to my heart.

"I Will Cherish It Always"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I had my DNA tested to see what my ethnicities were. As an African American, it was very important to me , as I only knew that my ancestors were Slaves. Within Africa, my ethnic background is Sierra Leonian, Kenyan, Nigerian, and Central African. I really wanted to celebrate my African Roots and purchased this beautiful Sankofa for mySelf. This truly is a Beautiful piece and I will cherish it always. Sterling silver and African artistry is amazing. Thank you, Sis.Zigah...I hope to return to the MotherLand, soon.

Though she was not born in West Africa, my granddaughter (born in Ethiopia) will treasure this for her whole life. She was so thrilled to receive it.

I was surprised at how thin the silver is given the price (and I used a 50% off coupon)
