Asante brassweights were created as a means to measure and weigh gold dust for trade in ancient African civilizations. Burnished gold finish African Charm Bracelet and Necklace and Star Drop Earrings are inspired by some of these brassweight designs, found in the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art. Conceived in ancient times, these contemporary jewelry adaptations are, in a word, charming. Timeless, too. 23" L.
