Ishkar's Link earrings were designed with the simple stud as a starting point. The two interlinking, softened rectangles create an architectural look. The lower 'link' is free to swing, sparkle and twist creating a wonderfully kinetic effect.
Our values and this particular product:

Known to locals as Bamiyan Turquoise, this mineral (scientific name: Chrysocolla) is mined in Bamiyan, which sits in a stunning lush green valley surrounded by snow-capped peaks.
On top of the amount paid to the artisans, a further 10% of the value of this product goes towards the Turquoise Mountain Foundation. Turquoise Mountain supports Afghan artisans by providing them with three years of technical training, as well as a full range of business support following graduation. You can read more about the Foundation in our profile piece about Ishkar in our journal.
