Turquoise Mountain Spinel Hook Earrings
The Turquoise Mountain Spinel Hook Earrings encase two pairs of spinel crystals, expertly spectacle-set by the Turquoise Mountain goldsmiths so you can appreciate their unique natural form of the cubic crystals and allow the light to pass through. At the base of the earrings are small gold triangles, held on by a gold cube echoing the spinel’s form and allowing the triangles to move freely as you wear them.
Part of the Rock Hound’s Turquoise Mountain Collection. With this collection The Rock Hound wanted to meld the ancient traditional techniques with their trademark facet pattern, all whilst respecting the native gold and spinel crystals from Myanmar. Working with the team at Turquoise Mountain Myanmar, they’ve been able to create pieces which invoke ancient artefacts and wouldn’t look out of place in a museum’s display case.
Turquoise Mountain was established in 2006 by HRH The Prince of Wales to revive historic areas, traditional crafts and communities, in order to provide jobs, education and a renewed sense of pride. Turquoise Mountain is working with talented goldsmiths in Yangon to create heritage-inspired and custom pieces using these semi-precious stones for today’s international designers and buyers. Their meticulous goldsmiths are all natives of Ramree Island in Southern Rakhine, which has a goldsmithing tradition going back to the sixth century. Using gold, gemstones, and pearls from the Bay of Bengal, they create small and timeless works of art.
