Unique and delicate Sterling Silver star anise pendant with precious gemstones and hand-wrapped detailing. On this pendant, our metalsmiths hand-wrap Sterling Silver wire with gorgeous, genuine Sapphires. In Bangla, the language of many of the women and children we serve, Nila is a girl's name meaning Sapphire.
The star anise is not only a beautiful design form, it also brings the flavorful punch of licorice to foods, and is a natural antiviral used for medicinal purposes. Spiritually, it is believed to clear negative energy. Sapphires are revered around the world for their incredible color, brilliance and strength; they are also a native stone to India.

The Cardamom collection is a celebration of nature, strength, and growth inspired by India and its women warriors. The collection is also inspired by seeds planted for personal growth, healing, and new beginnings. The seeds used are spices at the root of Indian cuisine and culture, enjoyed at our favorite time of the day, teatime. With each tea break or meal, like women everywhere, we bond, savor, laugh, nourish and learn. We heal, and we show up for each other.
