The craftsman jeweller responsible for the ring with lapis lazui details, gold-plated, is Ye Min Paing. He joined a goldsmith workshop as a teenager and learned how to create simple designs for earrings, chains and rings. Recently, Ye Min Paing joined Turquoise Mountain as an apprentice in their jewellery workshop and graduated from their apprenticeship program last year.

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.
