Earrings are the ultimate adornment. Our tribal and contemporary collection features pearl earrings, stone and silver studs, drop earrings, small earrings, gemstone earrings, hoops, large earrings, long earrings and everything in between. We also specialise in unique tribal earrings sourced from all over the world.
Simple or elaborate, a pair of earrings will always enhance your natural beauty. Or as Jennifer Lopez says "Women should never go without earrings. Passing on them is an opportunity missed".
Kashgar is an Australian business first started by Bernie Heaphy in the 1980's, through his love of exotic travel and his fascination with all things handmade and beautiful.
Although Bernie has sadly passed away, his daughter Linda and her husband Ian continue the family tradition of travel and the collection of beautiful, tribally sourced jewellery, textiles and artefacts. Our mission, as always, is to support, honour and maintain age-old traditions as well as ethical and sustainable methods of production.
We hand pick only that which is handmade, unusual and beautiful. Raising awareness of these items has the beneficial effect of increasing demand and value, as time-honoured means of craftsmanship passed from generation to generation disappear in favour of mass produced goods.
Kashgar means more than just an appreciation of handcrafted items. By supporting traditional methods of production we encourage cottage industries to thrive and help ethnic minorities maintain self-sufficiency, while reducing impact on the environment. It's about preserving traditions that, if lost now, will be lost forever.
By shopping with us, you are actively supporting village artisans and the preservation of age-old crafts and traditions.
Timeless unpolished lapis lazuli from Afghanistan is teamed with sterling silver to make a simple yet stunning necklace. This classic creation is a signature piece of Kashgar jewellery and is one of our most popular designs.
We miss you so much little sweetheart. Forever in our hearts, until we are together again.
In loving memory of dad

The intrepid founder of our business, Bernard Heaphy, passed away in December of 2022. Bernie suffered from a debilitating form of Parkinsons in the latter years of his life, but continued to take a strong interest in all things related to Kashgar.
Bernie changed the lives of many people for better during the Kashgar years, always encouraging people to go forth and reach their full potential. He was considered a magician by many, with stories of exotic places and the fantastic objects he brought home.
