18kt Gold Vermeil PSTM Afghanistan Lapis & Turquoise Aryana Inlay on Chain

$560

The Aryana inlay is an ode to the beauty of Islamic traditional art. In removing figurative art, there was an attempt to not replicate nature as it is but to convey what it represents. The use of geometry is thought to reflect the language of the universe and to help the believer to reflect in life and the greatness of creation.  The artisans have used ancient techniques to inlay the turquoise and lapis lazuli.
 
Every piece is hand made in Kabul by the men and women artisans of the Turquoise Mountain Foundation. Training and employing young people in meaningful creative jobs is vitally important now in Afghanistan when the young desperately need hope and a sense of purpose in a beautiful country tragically caught up in violence and conflict.
