Silver and turquoise
These striking earrings are a symbolic interpretation of the Ka’aba when viewed from above during Hajj. The square turquoise represents the Ka’aba at the centre of the surrounding crowd of pilgrims. The designer’s own handwritten Arabic calligraphy impression reads: Mikat, Mecca, Mina, Plain of Arafat, Muzdalifa, Plain of Mina, and Mecca again, the seven stopping locations for a pilgrim on Hajj.
Persia has been an important source of turquoise for at least 2,000 years its pure, “robin’s egg blue” color earned the highest prices on the world market.. It was initially named “pirouzeh” (victory) by the Persians and, later, “firouzeh.”. In Iranian architecture, the blue turquoise was used to cover the domes of palaces because its intense blue colour was also a symbol of heaven on earth. The western name for turquoise comes from the country, Turkey, which traded Iranian firouzeh with Europe.
