Symbol Meaning

  • Omanhene (Paramount Chief): The chief of chiefs or kings of kings for an Akan tribe or region.

Since the fourteenth century, Akan rulers have used elaborate displays of royal regalia (Agyapdie) to express their power and wealth, as well as to shield themselves from harm. We have erected this royal regalia through the Omanhene collection in modern fashion while maintaining the authenticity of style and techniques used to produce them that are centuries old.

We are Ghanaians and a black owned small business in love with our culture with a mission to share a piece of our heritage with the rest of the world.

Therefore we employ local smiths and artisans here in Ghana who understand the cultural relevance of our products to design and produce our pieces.

Responsible Labor

At Adinkra Jewelry, we've taken an oath to support healthy, happy & financially beneficial working conditions. We directly employ the original smiths of our ancient jewelery with fair wages and give tribute to the royals who have adorned them for generations. No part of our supply chain is left out, and we're always working to do better.

Cultural Education

Before you wear our pieces, we strive for you to know the history and significance of what you wear and of the people who craft them. It's not just a trendy fashion statement, it's a historical piece that connects us to a lineage of black culture going back thousands of years.
