Bactrian Heart Earrings with Lapis - Museum Shop Collection
National Museum of Afghanistan & National Geographic Society
Two thousand years ago, merchants traveling the Silk Road introduced exotic designs to the craftsmen of ancient Afghanistan. These smiths and jewelers used gold, carnelian, turquoise, and other materials to create beautiful ornaments. This jewelry is inspired by the wealth of the Bactrian Hoard unearthed at Tillya Tepe, or Golden Hill, in Northern Afghanistan.
