Almasika‘s creations are to be worn like precious talismans. Born out of the fusion of Swahili and West-African terms, “almasi” (diamond) and “sika” (gold), the London-based brand sets out to celebrate Africa’s culture of adornment by paying homage to its history of ancient civilizations. For her Le Cauri Endiamanté collection, founder Catherine Sarr, of Parisian and Beninese origins, transforms the traditional cowry shell into a yellow gold, diamond paved version, infused with precious spiritual meaning. Truly magical.
