Jahanara Earstuds in Lapis Lazuli
Delicate tear-shaped earrings in Lapis Lazuli.
Inspired by poet Saib-e-Tabrizi who wrote about the beauty of Kabul, with words still recited in the Afghan capital today:
"Her morning’s laugh is as gay as flowers,
Her dark nights shine like beautiful hair.
Her tuneful nightingales sing with flame in their notes,
Fiery songs like burning leaves fall from their throats.
I sing to the gardens, Jahanara and Shahrara.
Even the Tuba of Paradise is jealous of their greenery."
Materials: Lapis lazuli, with a gold-plated brass body.
Dimensions: 1.4cm x 1cm.
Please keep in a dry and cool place away from moisture and direct sunlight. To polish your artisan's craft, use a wedge of lemon, and polish along the tarnished surface with a small cotton towel.
