This ISHKAR gold-plated hammered ring with blue spinel stone is a stand alone style that is minimal yet detail-filled. The metal elements have a cool texture, and the boldly facetted, blue grey coloured stone is set in a raised fitting giving it space to sparkle.

The blue spinel gemstone is not only really beautiful and rather rare, it's also considered to have calming, tension-relieving qualities as well as defending the wearer from negative energy. Suffice to say we've invested in one or two of these rings, just in case...

Size: P = 5.5cm (finger diameter)

Our values and this particular product:

  • Natural materials 
  • Community engagement (including the additional support from Turquoise Mountain)
  • Conserving traditions

Sustainability Excellence

For centuries, Myanmar goldsmiths have been renowned for their hand-crafted jewellery but the skills needed to craft a jewellery piece by hand are at risk of disappearing. Each purchase of an ISHKAR piece created in Myanmar helps to sustain this industry. 

Decades of international isolation and sanctions have left Myanmar one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia, with a third of the population living in poverty. Through technical, design, and business training, Turquoise Mountain is supporting over 400 artisans to connect to international markets, and to generate sustainable incomes. Turquoise Mountain’s apprenticeship programme in Myanmar is also training the first generation of female goldsmiths in the country who learn from the masters of their craft. You can read more about the Foundation in our profile piece about Ishkar in our journal.
