The Elephant

This vintage gold weight now makes the perfect ring catch!


For background: To better control and regulate the trade in gold, merchants and rulers in West Africa developed brass weights called 'abrammuo' that set standard units of measure. This elephant is a vintage gold weight, cast from brass and inspired by an Akan proverb that translates to "one who follows the track of the elephant never gets wet from the dew on the bushes."
