The jeweler behind these earrings was our kind of guy. Nothing made him happier than a pack on his back and his trusty surfboard in hand. For six years, he traveled the world in search of the kinds of treasures you can’t get from some brick and mortar storefront. His trek took him to the far reaches of the globe, to places so far off and remote that they don’t appear on any map. To score the treasures he was after, our man had to find the back alley merchants the locals would show him only after he proved himself worthy.
One of his most popular treasures was this necklace he made based on lira from the Ottoman Empire. Inspired by our man’s travels in Turkey, this exotic necklace features eight replica coins finished with 24 karat gold. These pieces capture all of the intrigue and glamor of centuries past. Next time you’re trying to impress that special someone, think of our man, and the journey he made to bring these treasures to you.
