Old Collectible Turkmen Tribal Jewelry Pendant

This old Turkmen Tekke Tribal Jewelry Pendant was handcrafted in the early 1900's of Gold-gilded Silver with a large Carnelian Center stone and red-glass eye bead. The shape is that of a stylized bird in flight. Birds are greatly revered throughout Central Asia. Dwelling in the sky, they are seen as a connection linking earthly beings with the heavens. 

The bird motif is found in multiple art forms from this region, including carpets, pottery, and jewelry. Carnelians are also commonly used on Tribal Jewellery throughout Central Asia, and especially among the Turkmen. It is said to invigorate and uplift the wearer, while the red eye-shaped bead wards off the evil eye. Pendants like these were traditionally worn on a simple cord or sewn onto clothing.

This wonderful Turkmen Tekke Tribal Jewellery Pendant is in excellent condition with a mild age patina - ready for wearing and collecting. We have 2 of these pendants that are very similar and listed here. Please see the drop-down menu to see and select your favorite. Price is for one pendant.
