Antique Turkmen Silver and Carnelian Very Large Asyk Pendant

This extraordinary antique Turkmen Asyk Pendant was ornately handcrafted in gold-gilded silver and carnelians during the early 1900's or earlier. The artisan used the ancient niello technique to etch stylized flames and birds into the silver, then highlighted them with the gold-gild. 

The 6 carnelian stone are all intact with a vibrant sheen. Carnelians are believed to promise renewed vigor and protection to the wearer. 

This remarkable old piece is very large and rich with heritage. Asyk pendants are classically Turkmen, given to women during marriage celebrations by well-wishers offering their blessings, while also adding to the bride's wealth. Turkmen Asyks come in a variety of sizes and surface designs, but always with the same unique shape and purpose. 

This is a particularly beautiful antique piece of Collectible Museum Quality jewelry that is more than 100 years old. Excellent condition with patina intact.
