Carpet Collection

As the first Azerbaijani jewelry brand, Resm presents its unique collection inspired by ornaments and designs of Azerbaijani carpets.

These earrings have been inspired by the S element often found in Garabagh border motifs.

The S or Z element is a common element in tribal weaving and is used as a medallion filler motif and border.

Some researchers suggest that the S symbolizes a serpent or dragon, deriving ultimately from Chinese dragon motif.

Others suggest that S-shaped ornaments resemble a funneled flow of water and thus, hint at a settled-down, ameliorated way of life or, according to other interpretations, at fertility and immortality.
