Hand crafted by Desh and his family, outside of Kathmandu, Nepal. These delicate earrings are made from sterling silver and Tibetan turquoise. Tibetan turquoise is prized by the people of Tibet and Nepal for spiritual reasons as well as its beauty. Although many turquoise stones used now are made from compressed stone powder, these Tibetan turquoise earrings are complete pieces of turquoise that have been shaped for their settings.

Story

The Tibetan people regard turquoise as a sky stone that was brought to earth from the heavens above. It is believed to protect the wearer, and bring happiness and good fortune to them.

Desh and his family have run their shop outside of Kathmandu for many generations. The shop is at the front of their family compound, whose entrance was painted with colorful symbols on the 100th year of the family living there. They have been hand making jewelry and collecting antique masks from nearby villages all this time. We love working with such wonderful people, and contributing to their ancient family business!
