Description

The chakana or Inca Cross is an Andean symbol. The word chakana is derived from the Quechua word chakay, meaning "to cross". This cross represents the three tiers of Inca life: the lower world, this world and the higher world. The three levels are also known to represent the the snake, puma and condor. It is an icon that has been seen in the Incan culture, whether worn as a talisman or used in the architecture (i.e., temple steps).

While the hole in the center denotes Cusco, which is believed to be the center of the Incan empire and also represents the circle of life. The twelve outer corners are believed to mark the twelve months of the year. While the four main arms are thought to symbolize North, South, East and West.

Ada has worked with me before to create one of a kind custom rings that we give as graduation gifts every year to our students. I am very pleased with the quality, craftsmanship, and personal attention that Ada shows for every piece and order. She goes above and beyond to make sure you’ll love your custom piece! This is an amazing shop and you’ll be so glad you purchased from Ada!

Executed the concept perfectly. Good craftsmanship and excellent communication. Well made as the person who wears it is active and interacts with customers all day (shaking hands, moving items, etc).
