Turkmenistan Jewels | Old Necklace Tekke or Teke
Original old Necklace made of plaques embossed and decorated with recurring floral motifs combined with a simple centerpiece set with a hand-cut carnelian.
At the center there is the typical triangle-shaped pendant complete with carvings and decorations in vermeil – traditional features of Tekke or Teke crafts – from which descend seven chains with drops, considered as protection against evil spirits.

The chain is completely handmade.
