ISHKAR Zohak Necklace
This gold-plated necklace set with semi-precious spinel and lapis lazuli from Afghanistan comes on a 40.5cm handmade chain and is an elegant addition to your everyday look.
Inspired by the bullet-strewn hollows left after the Taliban destroyed the Buddhas of Bamiyan in 2001 - two monumental statues dating back to the 6th century - British jewellery designer Marks designed this necklace which is made by craftsmen in Kabul. By filling the blast marks with Afghanistan's precious stones, her collection symbolises the country's defiant beauty and resilience.
ISHKAR wants to ensure that craftsmanship in war-torn countries not only survives but thrives. Founders Edmund Le Brun and Flore de Taisne create economic opportunities for local artisans, support NGOs and go beyond the headlines to challenge perceptions and keep ancestral skills alive.
