Elegant Carnelian and Silver Turkmen Asyk

This ornate contemporary Turkmen Asyk (Asik) Pendant with Carnelian and Gilded Silver was handcrafted by Afghan Tribal Jewelry artisans living in Peshawar along the Afghan border. The repeating pyramid patterns are classically associated with the Turkmen tribes in the Kazakhstan region. The 3-dimensional upper rounded portion creates an ample bail for stringing your favorite ribbon, chain, or cord.

Asyk pendants are classically Turkmen, given to women as marriage gifts by well-wishers offering their blessings, while adding to the bride's wealth. Turkmen asyks come in a variety of sizes and surface designs, but always with the same unique overall shape and purpose.
