The ISHKAR gold-plated mini hoops are the ultimate versatile earring. Designed for wearing every day, these work perfectly as your main earring or as a huggie worn with other styles.

Handcrafted in Myanmar from gold-plated sterling silver. These gold-plated mini hoops pair beautifully with the agate, tourmaline or kunzite rings which have the same textural metal finish.

Our values and this particular product:

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

The craftsman jeweller responsible for the gold-plated mini hoops is Ye Myo Aung. After seeing a Facebook post about Turquoise Mountain’s apprenticeship program he decided to enrol. A decision that has led him to discover a talent and a passion for craft that he hopes will see him own his own business in the future.

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.
