Sterling Silver Kandake Ring


Kandake was the name for Queens and Queen Mothers of the ancient Afrikan kingdom of Kush, also known as Nubia and Ethiopia. The people's Kandake is above all women in countenance and strength of character.

One of the most famous Queens of Meroitic Kush is Kandake Amanirenas who led her army of 30,000 soldiers to fight the Romans in Egypt. After three years of battle, the two parties decided to sign a peace treaty which favored the Kushites.

Emperor Ceaser Augustus agreed with the queen to take his army out of Egypt, give the Kushites back their land, withdraw their forts and cancel the taxes. The Kingdom of Kush died a little over 400 years later but to this day, Kandake Amanirenas is said to be the bravest and most loyal ruler of the kingdom.

Onyx is believed to be a protective stone that allows you to release negativity while shedding light on your inner truth.
