The Craftsmen

Returning to Afghanistan in 2002 after having been forced to flee to Pakistan during the time of the Taliban, Javid set up one of the best-equipped workshops in the country. Javid is committed to mentoring Afghanistan's next generation of jewelers, offering apprenticeships in his own workshop for the most promising emerging talents. 

The Stones

Lapis Lazuli was once so exclusive it was reserved for the funeral masks of Pharoahs, and for the brush tips of the Renaissance’s most renowned artists. Lapis equalled the price of gold right up until the industrial age. Bamiyan Turquoise as it's locally called (scientific name: Chrysocolla), is less well-known but equally striking. It is mined just a stone’s throw away from the famous Buddhas of Bamiyan which were destroyed by the Taliban in 2001.

the Impact

On top of the amount we pay the artisans, a further 5% of the value of this product goes towards the Turquoise Mountain Foundation. Turquoise Mountain supports Afghan artisans by providing them with three years of technical training, as well as a full range of business support following graduation.
