Title: Heart-Shaped Silver and Carnelian Necklace Material: Tribal-silver and carnelian People: Turkmen Country: Central Asia Description: This beautifully collectable necklace features a filigreed tribal-silver heart with dangling silver beads and a single carnelian stone at its center. The heart hangs from an intricately crafted tribal-silver chain. Turkmen jewelry is highly sought after by both museums and individuals. The grooms family would receive the bride bejewelled from head to toe as an important part of the dowry exchange. The jewelry would have been worn on an important occasion such as their wedding day. It was a way to show off their wealth and status. Multiple artisans would work on a given piece of jewelry depending on their specialty such as chasing, engraving, gilding, etc. For the nomadic people, jewelry was easily transportable and could be exchanged for goods or melted down for its metal value.
