Hand crafted in Turkmenistan by an artist - circa 1st half XXth century

Inside Turkmenistan there were Wandering tribes - ersary /yomut / jafarbay - the jewelry was crafted by one of those tribes

From what I understand - the jewelry was used in religious ceremonies like a wedding or any other special ceremony

The jewelry is quite large & massive as u can see - very very good quality - massive thick silver - gold gilded - mounted with agate stones

Not marked silver tested with acid for at least 800/1000 ( high quality of silver)

Condition- the jewelry is in quite good condition I have taken many many photos to try and show this beautiful piece of art please examine them all
