Antique Silver and Carnelian Karakalpak Pendant - Collectible

This antique tribal pendant is a classic example of old Karakalpak jewelry. It was handcrafted in Central Asia during the early 1900's of silver and deep red carnelians, with a similar design on each side.  

A warm age patina remains, giving it a glow that only the passage of time can create. This is a sturdily made pendant, with balanced motifs and a 3-dimensional construction.

Karakalpak jewelry is bold and robust - a tribute to  Turkmen and Russian influences. Carnelians are the stone of choice, promising renewed vigor and protection to the wearer. For more information this unusual type of jewelry, please refer to the excellent website Karakalpak Jewelry
