ISHKAR is a London-based social enterprise seeking to challenge one-sided narratives of conflict-affected countries through a unique blend of exquisite craftsmanship, storytelling, and travel. For the last seven years, they have championed the craft cultures of places such as Afghanistan, Pakistan and Lebanon, creating economic opportunities for artisans cut off from international markets and ensuring ancient craftsmanship survives. 

Materials:

Our jewellery is handcrafted in the old city of Kabul, Afghanistan from sterling silver, 16 Carat Gold Plated Sterling Silver and Lapis Lazuli.

High in the valley of Sar-e Sang in North Eastern Afghanistan lie mountains streaked with seams of deep blue rock. This iconic stone – Lapis Lazuli - has obsessed humans for millennia. Once so exclusive it was reserved for the funeral masks of Pharaohs, and for the brush tips of the Renaissance’s most renowned artists, the price of Lapis Lazuli equalled the price of gold right up until the industrial age. Afghanistan is home to the world’s largest deposit of Lapis Lazuli.

Returns:

The unique nature of each earring and the limited availability of this stock means Ivy & Normanton cannot offer returns on these items unless they are faulty.
