African Star Drop Earring

Often identified with the Asante peoples, brass weights for measuring gold dust were used throughout Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire. Each party to a trade would check the gold using their own weights. Our jewelry and accessories are inspired by a variety of weights featuring fish, animals, geometrics and other designs in the collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American Art.
