Turkmen Tribal Jewelry - Large Silver Triple-Asyk

This large Triple-Asyk (Goza Asyk) was skillfully handcrafted in Gold-gilded Silver. It combines 3 distinct Asyk shapes - the 2 on either side are immediately recognizable, while the 3rd is depicted in relief sitting in the background. 

This 2-forward-1-in-relief arrangement is a traditional Turkmen motif, with examples found in museum pieces and Turkmen Jewelry literature. The gold-gilded designs etched into the surface are of stylized birds and flames - a traditional Turkmen Tekke application, bringing the wearer closer to nature.  

9 carnelian vibrant red carnelians sit in raised silver bezels, fending off the evil eye. An upper border of repeating rams horns offers protection from harm. 

Large loop bails (one on each side at top) are perfect for wearing on your favorite cord, chain, or ribbon. Excellent condition.

Asyk pendants are classically Turkmen (Turkoman), given to women as engagement and wedding gifts by well-wishers, while adding to the bride's personal wealth. Turkmen Asyks come in a variety of sizes and surface designs, but always with the same unique shape and purpose.

   Size = 3-1/4 inches tall x 3-7/8 inches wide (1 inch = 2.54 cm)
   Weight = 2.5 oz (71 grams)
   Material = Silver; Gold-gild; Carnelians
