Graphic, versatile, modern and elegant. What more could you ask for from these ISHKAR stud hoop earrings in silver with lapis? Handcrafted earrings in 925 Sterling Silver with lapis lazuli stones. 

The stud hoop earrings in silver with lapis have been cleverly designed so that you can wear them in three ways. Either with the stud and the hoop together, in front of your earlobe, with the stud in front and the hoop behind your earlobe, or just the stud alone.

Size: hoops just over 3cm in diameter.

Our values and this particular product:

  • Natural materials 
  • Minimal waste, pollutants and emissions
  • Vegan
  • Community engagement (including the additional support from Turquoise Mountain)
  • Conserving traditions

The blue lapis lazuli stone used in the stud hoop earrings in silver with lapis, comes from Sar-e Sang in North Eastern Afghanistan. This iconic stone was once so exclusive it was reserved for the funeral masks of Pharaohs and for the brush tips of the Renaissance’s most renowned artists. 

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.

On top of the amount ISHKAR pay 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.
