Quail Earrings in Bamiyan Turquoise
Elegant earrings formed with the outlines of the quail bird in sterling silver, and in-laid with Bamiyan turquoise, complimenting the curves of the ear.
Designed in the shape of the quail - an Afghan bird that is considered a symbol of good luck and fortune. Keeping quails is a tradition that stretched back thousands of years ago, and traditionally considered part of Pashtun culture. In fact, it is a favourite for the people of Kandahar, where it is known as Karak bazi.
Materials: Sterling silver with Bamiyan Turquoise (chrysocolla)
Dimensions: 5.1cm x 1.9cm.
Silver tarnishes with oxidation and exposure to moisture.
To polish your artisan's craft, use solution of lemon juice and salt, and polish along the surface with a small cotton towel.
