Materials & Details

  • Materials: Rose quartz gemstones and gold vermeil — locally and artisanally mined rose quartz masterfully set in 925 sterling silver with thick 18kt gold plating.
  • Size: Square measures 10 mm, gemstone measures 25 mm in length and 20 mm in width. Length from top of earring hook to bottom of gemstone is 60 mm.
  • Each piece is handmade, and slight variations may occur from piece to piece. Our jewelry features a combination of natural pearls and gemstones, each with its own distinctive characteristics. Natural variations in color, size, shape, and texture are inherent in both pearls and gemstones. This is part of the handmade process, adding to the uniqueness and charm of each item.

Story, Sustainability & Impact

This piece was designed in Canada and handmade by master artisans in Murad Khani, Kabul, Afghanistan. Afghan jewelers have worked in isolation, cut off internationally for decades due to ongoing conflict. This collection is made in collaboration with Turquoise Mountain — founded by King Charles to focus on the regeneration of the Afghan crafts industry. Our locally sourced gemstones are artisanally mined and support local families and the rebuilding of old Kabul.
