Ndovu Silver Elephant Cord Necklace



Ndovu, the Swahili name for the African elephant, is a magnificent and fascinating creature. If you’ve witnessed one in the wild, you won’t forget its unmistakable air of authority as it walks along the African plains.

As a matriarchal society, elephants symbolise family and community, taking great care of their offspring and elders alike. They are even known to mourn the death of a herd member, showing their sensitivity and compassion.

Elephants also show immense determination and loyalty, always standing up for other members of the group – just as you would defend your friends and family.

They have incredible memories and are great problem solvers, often leading the herd to watering holes that they remember from the past. Elephants are therefore associated with intelligence and leadership.

May the Ndovu empower you to approach challenges with wisdom and patience, and remind you to cherish and protect your family and loved ones.
