Turquoise Mountain Sharifa Earrings


18kt Gold Plated Silver

Stone: Gold

Inspired by the Bactarian gold crowns that were found in Afghanistan, the 2000 year old jewels were famously buried and hidden by the Kabul museum director during the turbulent times of the Taliban, in fear of them all being stolen and melted down.


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.
