Vintage Ersari Turkmen Large Triangle Pendant

This large vintage tribal-jewelry pendant was handcrafted during the early 1900's in Central Asia by the nomadic Ersari Turkmen (Turkoman) tribe. The lower portion is the traditional Turkmen triangle - a hallmark motif found in much of their jewelry and other artistry. Some say that the triangle symbolizes the highest form of femininity to the Turkmen, while others say it represents the beloved surrounding mountains. 

Clattering dangles hang below to make sound with movement. A smaller upper portion has a hook for attaching directly to the hair, cap, or garment. Two beads sit in raised bezels, strategically placed by the artisan to ward off the evil eye. A rich age patina adds a sheen that only the passage of time can create. This is a sturdily made pendant that does not bend.
