A'Sika - Akrafena
The Akrafena sword originates from the Ashanti tribe, located in central Ghana. It was originally meant for warfare but is now used in ceremonies to symbolise courage, responsibility and bravery.
The etchings engraved upon the sword are the Adinkra symbols used to convey the message of the mission; Osram, (The Moon) reflecting patience and understanding and Nsoromma (The Star) representing guardianship.
The hilt of the sword is topped with a clenched fist; the universal sign of resistance against oppressors and the iconic symbol for Black Power. The importance of these symbols and their meaning echo’s from their ancient inception through the ages, because Black Lives Matter today, tomorrow and forever.

Please use only warm soapy water to clean your jewellery. A metal specific polishing cloth, or specialised jewellery cleaner can also be used to rejuvenate your piece. Some of our jewellery pieces are unpolished and can change colour over time (especially if left unworn). This is not a manufacturing fault, just the manner of the material.
Please be conscious that gold-plated jewellery is delicate and may scratch or wear over time. We offer our customers gold plating renewal on their items when deemed necessary. We are happy to arrange this at minimal expense to the customer. Customers will need to cover the freight costs. We do not charge extra for this service or profit from it.
