Inspired by an actual wall mural from the Mughal era. The Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan built the world renowned Taj Mahal as a tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It houses Shah Jahans tomb itself. Constructed over a 20-year period on the southern bank of the Yamuna River in Agra, India, the famed complex is one of the most outstanding examples of Mughal architecture, which combined Indian, Persian and Islamic influences. It remains one of the world’s most celebrated structures and a stunning symbol of India’s rich history.
The detailed wall carvings and inlay work form inspiration for this earring.
We did this earring originally with Diamonds. Here we have done it in vermeil (Gold plated on silver with the ancient technique of Enamel). The earring has a fabulous fluid movement to it.
