Akan Ring

I've used the Akan Adinkra Symbol system as inspiration for many of the pieces I've created.  

The other day I found this beautiful gold ring on a Pinterest board of Cynthia Laurent,"Jewellery I Love." 

When I dug back on the image I found that it is credited with the geograplhic location of Ghana / Ivory Coast, circa.1935.  The ring is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas.
