Story & Meaning: Behind our name

We settled for the name Kora Kora for our brand since the term "Kora" encompasses numerous cultures, with roots in Greece, West Africa, and the Indian Subcontinent. Kora refers to a musical instrument in West Africa, but it takes on a whole other connotation in Greek mythology as "maiden" as it travels north.


It is referred to as a "circular voyage" as the word travels east, tucked away in the shadows of the Himalayas and Bhutan. Kora has a musical, mystical, and spiritual essence that represents components of a meaningful and purposeful journey. The idea was conceived to handcraft authentic jewelry intended to change and leave an impact on the way you view this beautiful journey we call life.
