Lapis and vermail on silver
The design of these lapis lazuli earrings was inspired by the traditional prayer beads (Tasbeh) used since ancient times and the single silver bead symbolizes the different shaped bead often included to help with counting. It features the poetry of Rumi, a Persian poet widely admired in the world and the designer’s own calligraphy.
Afghanistan was the source of lapis lazuli for the ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations, as well as the later Greeks and Romans.The best lapis lazuli is found in Badakhshan province in north-eastern Afghanistan and has been used for millennia in jewellery. The word lazuli is derived ultimately from the Persian lazhward, the name of a place where it was mined and which came to be associated with the stone and, eventually, with its colour.
