The centerpiece of these beautiful aquamarine waistbeads is the heart-shaped African adinkra symbol, the Sankofa. In the Akan language of Ghana, Sanfoka translates to “go back and take,” and the word is often linked to the proverb, “It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.” This phrase holds special meaning for the people of the African Diaspora.
Pale blue-green aquamarine was popular among the ancient Egyptians, they believed the stone was a symbol of happiness and eternal youth.
The heart shape and the special significance makes it the perfect gift for Black Love Day – St. Valentine’s. One of a kind!
