Tekke Turkmen (Turkoman) Lapis and Silver Horse Pendant 

This large lapis lazuli and silver horse pendant was handcrafted during the late 1900's for the Tekke Turkmen (Turkoman) tribe of Central Asia. Tekke Turkmen jewelry is known for its gold-gilded designs on silver and  large eye shaped-beads set in raised bezels. 

It has a mildly antiqued finish giving it a pleasing depth. This is a sturdily handmade large pendant of quality silver; it does not bend. 

This purchase arrives with a simple black cord for wearing right away. You can easily replaced the cord, however, if you prefer to wear on your own cord, chain, or ribbon.
