These earrings are handmade from sterlingsilver and lapiz gemstones.<br><br> The design is inspired by the traditional prayer beads (Tasbeh) used in Afghanistan since ancient times, and the contrasting silver bead symbolises the different shaped bead often included to help with counting. Engraved into the silver is the poetry of Hafez, a Persian poet widely admired in Afghanistan and the designer?s own calligraphy. <br><br> The earrings form part of a British Museum selection from the designer Sima Vaziry, an artisan jeweller based in London.

Designed exclusively for the British Museum, a pair of handmade silver earrings crafted from a lapis lazuli stones sourced from Afghanistan.

Inspired by Tasbeh prayer beads, the pure silver disc features an impression of lines from Persian poet Rumi’s I have a cave, in designer Sima Vaziry’s own calligraphy. The elaborate silver discs and lapis lazuli stones are hung on sterling silver hooks.

Afghanistan has long been the source of much of the world’s supply of the vibrant stone, lapis lazuli. Ancient Egyptians, Mesopotamians and later Greeks and Romans would import the stone, valued for the brilliance of its colour, from the Badakhshan province in the north-eastern region of Afghanistan.  

A beautiful gift for lovers of unique jewellery.
