The Fingerprint of Love

ROHO is the Swahili word for
“soul”, and is defined as the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or
animal regarded as immortal.

Described as the the distinct emotional energy and intensity revealed in a relationship
with someone with whom you share immense compatibility, the term “soulmate”
springs to mind.

Greek Mythology and Soulmates

In Greek Mythology, the concept of soulmates is rooted in the idea that that two individuals are two halves of the same whole, originally united but separated by the Greek god Zeus due to his jealousy and fear.  This separation led to the perpetual search for our “other half”. 

What is a Soulmate?

In the modern world, while people often see soulmates as a love story-perfect match, soulmates can transcend much more than romantic love.  Consider the following:

Best friends find it easy and fun to be in each other’s presence, support one
another’s life goals, and are there in time of difficulty to help out. 

Karmic soulmates come into your life to teach you something, or provide a need.  Each person in this soulmate connection will bring a particular skill to the table, but both share a united vision.

The romantic soulmate defined by, well…. romance and unconditional love.

Parent/child soulmate - unconditional mutual love and support, and on the part of the parent, selflessness.

A twin flame connection describes a relationship in which each person sees a part of themselves in the other. They share specific qualities, passions, or insecurities.

Pets - life-form makes no difference!  Pets are often a great deal more than just companions.

The holistic psychologist , Dr Nicole LePera, best sums it up as:

Your soulmate is whoever you put your energy into. It's whoever you learn to compromise with. It's whoever allows you to feel safe and accepted as you are.  It’s who reminds you that you’re greater than your circumstances.  Soulmates are the result of work.” 

St Valentine's Day

Originally a day for lovers, St Valentine’s Day has evolved to include the celebration of various precious relationships between soulmates – lovers, friends, husbands and wives, children, and even
teachers!  People express their love with cards, flowers, and gifts.

Over the years, we have marked weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and (of course) Valentine’s Day with gifts of gold or silver.  Why?  Well, because jewellery makes us feel connected to the ones we love, and evokes emotions of care and love towards them.

Jewellery is a also a physical reminder of our memories, transporting us back to moments with or soulmates that we want to cherish for a lifetime.  It also lasts much longer than one lifetime, so heirlooms of memories (and the stories that created them) can be passed down to future generations, creating lasting
connections and collective memories between generations. 


Fingerprints develop in the womb and, once fully developed, the pattern remains the same for life.  Just as all of us exhibit unique fingerprints, we all also display distinct “soul prints” – our words, attitudes, values, and behavious etch an indelible imprint on the mind and heart of those we love – our soulmates. 

ROHO has married the physical with the emotional
to create a heirloom that is a tangible reminder of the soul.  The gift of jewellery to, or from, a soulmate
is one of the most personal celebrations of love we experience – what more meaningful personal gift of love and commitment for a soulmate is there than your own fingerprint, or their fingerprint, in gold or silver?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Until next time,


At long last, the moment we've all been waiting for has arrived! I am thrilled to announce the launch of two new products to the ROHO Heritage range: the Impression Charm Bracelet and the exquisite Birthdate Pendant. As a one-woman, mommy-owned business, this is a monumental achievement that I honestly thought I would have achieved months ago but life had other ideas. I am learning to accept that things happen when and how they are meant to, and I couldn't be more prouder of getting here.

What inspired the creation of these new products?

Throughout the year of 2023, we faced numerous challenges and bumps along the way (which is so normal and I am sure many people and small business owners can relate). However, I kept chipping away, albeit slowly, whilst juggling another job and being a happy-to-be-at-home Mommy. Keeping my Ethos and my 'Why' for creating ROHO always at the back of my mind. The development of these new products has been a labor of love, fueled by my passion for creating meaningful and personalised jewellery to commemorate love and life.

What makes the Charm Bracelet so special?

The Charm Bracelet is a true treasure, a redesign of the classic charm bracelet - designed to capture the essence of your whole families story. Each charm represents a family member and you can choose between 1 and 5 charms to add on. It's the perfect accessory to capture your whole family on one piece of jewellery, and to keep them close, always.

What sets the Birthdate Pendant apart?

The Birthdate Pendant is a timeless piece that celebrates the most important day of your life – the day you were born. Or in my case the day my daughter Arielle was born (and more importantly the day I evolved and became a mother). Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this pendant features a delicate vertical design that showcases your birthdate in a stunning and sophisticated way, either in times numerals or classic numerals. It serves as a constant reminder of the beauty and significance of our existence on earth.

How can I order these new products?

Ordering our new Charm Bracelet and Birthdate Pendant is as easy as can be! Simply visit our website and browse through our collection. Once you've found the perfect piece, select your preferred options and add it to your cart. Because we are a small, slow-made business our turnaound time is 3-4 weeks from the time or purchase for the birthdate pendant, and 3-4 weeks from the time we receive the finished wax kit back for the charm bracelet. 

What makes these products perfect for gifting?

Our Charm Bracelet and Birthdate Pendant make unforgettable gifts for your loved ones. Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion, these pieces are sure to leave a lasting impression. The personalisation allows you to create a truly meaningful and heartfelt gift that will be treasured forever. Show your loved ones how much they mean to you with a gift that speaks volumes and captures soul.

What's next for our mommy-owned business?

We are constantly striving to bring you innovative and beautiful products that are meaningful and made to become heirlooms. Our journey doesn't end here – we have many exciting plans for the future (Hint Hint: expansion and some bling!) Stay tuned for more surprises, as we continue to pour our heart and soul into creating jewellery that tells your unique story.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. We are immensely grateful for your support to this small business, and cannot wait to see how our new Charm Bracelet and Birthdate Pendant bring joy and happiness into your lives by keeping your loved ones close, forever.
