Emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and lapis lazuli, beautifully set in gold and silver, conjure up the timeless beauty and richness of Afghanistan. These incredible gems, traded for millennia along the Silk Road in the bustling bazaars of both east and west, are once again reclaiming their rightful place in the world market. In Turquoise Mountain, Afghan artisans and designers collaborate with international talent to create unique and memorable handmade jewellery. Inspired by traditional Afghan designs and motifs, these pieces celebrate the spirit and history of this extraordinary land, from the delicate filigree of the Turkmen tradition to the bird motif of the nomadic Kuchi tribe. All jewellery can be made in gold, silver or brass, or in gold-plated silver or brass.
