Begum invites you into a surrealist playground of natural wonders with the Fly Away Dali Earrings. Quirky yet luxurious, they feature 24kt gold-plated bronze fashioned into a graceful hand clasping a gemstone-encrusted fly, complete with a comfortable clip-on fastening that’s suitable for both pierced and unpierced ears. Like all Begum Khan’s pieces, they are handcrafted in Istanbul by local artisans. Style with a relaxed linen blazer to bring out the contrast.

Born into a family of Ottoman art collectors in the ancient imperial capital of Istanbul, Begum cultivated her love of beautiful things from an early age. As a child, she explored the ancient alleyways and hidden nooks of cities her family visited in search of antique treasures, and Istanbul’s labyrinthine Grand Bazaar became her playground.
Strongly influenced by nature, Begum’s designs bring to life a menagerie of exotic flora and fauna, fashioned from pink sapphires, baroque pearls and other rare and precious materials. Stag beetles and ladybirds cling to brooches and cuffs, while turtles, koi fishes and lotus flowers dangle from earrings and necklaces.
