Beautiful Afghani lapis lazuli set into sterling silver double bezel stud earrings.
Lapis Lazuli has been used in jewellery since antiquity. The deeper the blue the more prized the stone. It is also considered to bring peace and harmony and protect against the evil eye. Interestingly, powdered lapis was used to create ultramarine, a colour used by painters in the 13th and 14th Century.
