Zulu Love Letters are African Beaded messages given by Zulu maidens to their lovers as symbols of their love and affection. Each bead color of the Zulu Love Letter conveys a different message. With this heart symbol, the white represents hope, purity, cleanliness and true love. Whilst the red is a symbol for intense love and longing.

This love letter has been hand-made by the rural woman of South Africa and can be worn as a brooch. It comes attached to a little card explaining the meaning of the colours. A perfect gift for the love of your life. Or even an unusual Valentine gift.
