Urban Atoll | Akuru
Historically having its roots in Sanskrit, the Maldivian alphabet has developed into its current form over hundreds of years going through different iterations before becoming the 'Thaana Akuru' that we use today.
Transient and susceptible to change, the Akuru series is a celebration of the 'Thaana Akuru' in its current form unique to us here in the Maldives, and hopes to preserve these forms and written letters for generations to come.
Twenty five letters of the Thaana alphabet studs in rhodium plated silver sterling can be mixed and matched to add a personal touch to your look.
Each Akuru stud is sold separately
