Our ethnic amethyst earring design draws on Zimbabweans great history. We have hand-engraved a combination of the chevron pattern from the walls of Great Zimbabwe on the top and bottom of these earrings with a stylized Ndoro in the center.

These traditional looking, dangle earrings are made of Sterling Silver with African amethyst beads and are sure to get some heads turning. They are approx 5 cm long, and are paired with a gorgeous, Sterling Silver hook. Suitable for all occasions.

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Ndoros were originally made from conus shells and due to their high demand were later manufactured from porcelain.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.
