Our Matobo Secret Ring has a twisted rope design around the base of the stone and leaves connecting the shank of the ring to the base of the cabochon.
Underneath the cabochon is where you will find a reminder of one of the secrets of life! A cut out of a Mopane leaf. Mopane leaves looked like butterflies to me. When I was a kid hanging out on the kopjes in the Matopas I used to stare at the Mopane trees in the wind and wonder if their leaves would turn into butterflies and fly off!
For me they are reminders that in life there are many phases and things will always change. But fortunately, there are always some things in our lives that will always remain rock solid!
We lovingly wrap each ring in hessian and package it in our round sisal baskets. Due to the handmade nature of the baskets and the organic material used - colour and pattern may vary. Our baskets are made by women from Lupane and Matopas who belong to groups that promote fair trade and self-sufficiency.
