Sandkofa, is a play on the Ghanaian word Sankofa


It translates to go back and get it and means “don’t forget about your past.”

Sandkofa jewelry contains sand from the Cape Coast, home to the Elmina slave castle, known as the Door of No Return.


Pushed through the Door of No Return, millions of Africans were shipped from places like the Elmina slave castle to a life of slavery in Brazil, the Caribbean and America.

Sandkofa flips this nickname on its head. 

Through profit share with Birthright Africa, each piece of jewelry helps a descendant of Africa to reconnect with cultural roots.
