THE KWELE Sapphire Marquise Ear Cuff



THE KWELE Sapphire Marquise Ear Cuff features an array of marquise shaped sapphires that reflect and protect. Arranged as a four pointed flower inspired by a classic silhouette that can be found on the forehead of traditional Kwele masks from Gabon. A popular global design, the inverted silhouette of the marquise stones create the Ghanian adinkra symbol Mmusuyidee which translates to 'that which removes bad luck' and representing good fortune and sanctity.

Our ear cuffs are designed to be slipped on to the upper ear and gently guided to the lower nook of the ear where they sit secure without the need to tighten or adjust. Handcrafted with fine metals and responsibly sourced sapphires using the traditional lost-wax casting technique.
