These simple yet elegant earrings feature a pale blue aquamarine gemstone, which are native to Afghanistan.
Gems and stones which are indigenous to Afghanistan include Lapis Lazuli, Chrysocolla, Aquamarine, Kunzite, Ruby, Sapphire, Amethyst, Emerald, Tourmaline and Garnet. These incredible gems, traded for millennia along the legendary Silk Route in the bustling bazaars of both east and west, are once again reclaiming their rightful place in the world market.
This pendant is part of a collaboration between the renowned designer and anthropologist Pippa Small and Turquoise Mountain, who have created a unique jewellery collection inspired by traditional Afghan designs and motifs celebrating the spirit and history of this extraordinary land.
Ideal as a gift or as a culturally-inspired piece for your collection.
