Antique Tribal Jewelry Pendant Necklace from Uzbekistan - Museum Quality

This remarkable silver pendant necklace was handcrafted with turquoise and carnelians more than 100 years ago by Bukhara Tribal Jewelry artisans in Uzbekistan. It is a classic example of old Uzbeki jewelry, studded with tiny turquoise beads, intricate silverwork, and vibrant carnelian beads set in raised bezels to ward off the evil eye.  

This old tribal necklace is in excellent condition with a warm age patina that adds definition and a glow that only the passage of time can create. It is ready for wearing and adding to your Uzbek Bukhara Tribal Jewelry Collection. Museum Quality. I have had this in my collection for several years, and rarely see any more old pieces like this.

About Bukhara: Recognized for centuries for its fine jewelry, Bukhara, Uzbekistan was a major stop along the ancient Silk Road - a web of trade routes connecting goods and ideas between the East and the West. Artisans throughout Central Asia traveled to Bukhara hoping to apprentice in its jewellery-making trade. Bukhara jewelry is among the most highly prized in Central Asian Collections.
