Legend has it, that after gaining enlightenment, Buddha appeared on the other side of the Ganges River, as if crossing it by air. Journeying on to Sarnath on the outskirts of Benares, it was here that Buddha gave his first sermon, after reaching his highest awakening.
Hoops can be worn with & without the drop charm for two different looks.
Hoop dimensions: 18mm
Drop Charm dimension. 22 x 6mm
Material: Recycled sterling silver (also known as eco-silver). Lapis lazuli.
The Sarnath Hoops have been carefully crafted by a small team of marginalised artisans displaced from West Bengal, who have found sustainable livelihoods through their skill in making beautiful pieces like these.
They are proudly certified by the World Fair Trade Organisation.
Each piece comes packaged in a soft organic pouch, which has been lovingly made by some of Jaipur’s most vulnerable women, who are bettering their lives through the income from the block printing, tassel making and stitching of these very pouches. No two are the same, each one beautiful in its imperfections.
