Old Turkmen (Turkoman) Tribal Jewelry Headpiece Pendants PAIR

These wonderful large old Turkmen (Turkoman) Tribal Headpiece Pendants PAIR were sturdily handcrafted during the early to mid-1900's in Central Asia. 

They are worn draped on either side of the face, with long clattering dangles hanging below that make a wonderful sound with movement. The embroidered Turkmen headband is removable, and can also be worn as a choker.

Known among the Turkmen as Dogachik pendants, this intriguing style of jewelry is found throughout Central Asia by various names. Each pendant has a pointed hook on the end for securing directly to the hair, to other headpieces, or, as in this case, to a strip of fabric. Using a fabric strip is a clever way to assure that the pendants fall exactly where you want them, every time. 

These Dogachik pendants were polished at one time, although a pleasing mild patina remains from years of loving wear. 

Price includes Old Turkmen Dogachik PAIR and Turkmen embroidered headband/choker.
