These earrings were created by South African jewelry designer, Koketso Mohlala. Her beautiful designs embody South African pride, tradition, and the contemporary world of art and fashion. Wearing these African Continent earrings serve as a symbol of pride for those of African descent and a reminder of the rich history of their ancestors. Africa, the birthplace of humanity, is the most populous continent with an estimated 3000 distinct ethnic groups residing in 54 sovereign nations. An important part of African heritage is the creation of beautiful pieces of art to adorn the body. Contemporary artisans, such as Kokesto, are continuing this meaningful tradition and we are humbled to bring their work to new audiences.
