The ISHKAR gold-plated band with lapis details glint where the light reflects from the slightly hammered appearance of the surface. Detailed with two flashes of lapis lazuli. These are part of a collection of gold-plated, lapis lazuli detailed jewellery from Ishkar and each piece works beautifully alone, but we think they are best when worn together. 

Sizes: M = 5cm (finger diameter), P = 5.5cm (finger diameter)

Gold-plated band with lapis details feature tiny studs of deep blue lapis lazuli stone, which comes from high in the valley of Sar-e Sang in North Eastern Afghanistan.

On top of the amount that Ishkar pay the artisans, a further 10% of the value of this product goes towards the Turquoise Mountain Foundation.

Sustainability Excellence

This piece is produced by master artisans in Afghanistan. Since the Taliban took over in August 2021, we have removed all identifying references of ISHKAR's partners for security reasons. Some of their partners were able to leave Afghanistan. For those who remain, their craft is critical to sustain their livelihoods at a time when the country is in financial collapse and in the grip of a humanitarian disaster, making every purchase of an Afghan-made piece more important now than ever before.
