Large Turkmen 3-Band Tribal Jewelry Bilezik Cuff Bracelet

This Kazakh Turkmen (Turkoman) qasli bilezik bracelet is a traditional multi-band cuff from this region in Central Asia.

There are 3 gilded qoshmahs, or bands adding dimension and an impressive length. Each qoshmah has a repeating triangle design that is the hallmark of Kazakh tribal jewelry. 

In true Turkmen fashion, 9 eye-shaped lapis lazuli beads sit in raised bezels, intended to ward off the evil eye. Each terminal end has 7 “claws” or “fangs” that are said to have the amuletic powers of protection.

The qasli bilezik is classically Turkmen, often worn in pairs. Turkmen woman prized them not only for their beauty, but also to shield the wrists from injury – a welcome safeguard given their rigorous nomadic lifestyle.

We have 2 of these cuffs that are slightly irregular, but still look wonderful. Please see drop down menu to purchase an irregular cuff at a deep discount.
