Vintage Turkmen Tribal Jewellery Ring with 4 Large Bells

This unusual old Turkmen (Turkoman) ring was handcrafted during the mid-1900's for the nomadic tribes of Turkmenistan in Central Asia.

It has the classic hallmarks of the Ersari Turkmen sub-tribe, with its bold design, clean lines, and surface gilding.

A red beads in a raised bezel sits in the center, strategically placed to ward off the evil eye.

4 large bells hang from the corners, making a clattering sound when the hand moves.

The design is of 2 sets of double-headed eagles - a favored motif in Central Asia intended to protect the wearer from harm through continued vigilance.  

This is a sturdily constructed ring and does not bend. Wear patterns and a warm age patina remain after many years.

Large rings like this were also worn in the hair, with braids or locks threaded through the opening.

Comes in a gift-box.
