Necklace Length

This simple, sexy, unisex necklace has a Sterling Silver Ndoro hanging on a leather necklace with a handmade hook and eye clasp. The Sterling Silver Ndoro is 15 mm in diameter and is hand-engraved dot by dot to created our unique and stylized version of the Ndoro. The leather necklace is 60 cm long but please let me know if you would prefer a different length.

Ndoros are an ancient symbol of wealth and status used during the Great Zimbabwe Empire and across Africa, dating back to the 11th century.

Ndoros were originally made from conus shells and due to their high demand were later manufactured from porcelain. The people of Great Zimbabwe adopted this as their currency and into their culture. The number of Ndoros your wife wore directly indicated not only your wealth, but also your status in the community.

We handcraft every Ndoro ourselves in Zimbabwe, and are proud to say that due to their handmade nature, no two Ndoros are exactly the same.
