Tekke jewelery from Turkmenistan and Afghanistan. 19th Century
The Tekke are a tribe of southern Turkmanistan and northern Afghanistan. Their jewelery is characterized by symmetrical design with the contrast between gold and silver. A thin layer of gold (gilding)is applied to the pendants and bracelets by heating a mixture of gold and quicksilver which evaporates fast. Tekke goldsmiths prefer to adorn jewelery with the semiprecious carnelian.
This a beautiful pair!
