Turkmen Tribal Jewelry - Silver Asyk Pendant with Carnelian and Gold-Gild

Asyk (asik) pendants are classic Turkmen (Turkoman) jewelry. They are given to tribal women as engagement and wedding gifts by well-wishers, while also contributing 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 well-intended purpose.
This silver Asyk is typical of the Turkmen Tekke tribe, with designs of stylized birds wings and flames highlighted by gold-gild over silver. The large center carnelian bead is set in a raised bezel, perched there to ward off the evil eye and invigorate the wearer. 

This is a sturdily made contemporary Turkmen Tekke Asyk silver pendant, handcrafted by Tribal Jewelry artisans in Peshawar along the Afghan border.
