This beautiful old 26” necklace holds a truly fine tribal antique Turkoman pendant that has been lovingly worn and prized for decades. The pendant was carefully crafted by a highly skilled, long gone silversmith and made to be hollow to avoid too much weight. The silver appears to be sterling or possibly coin silver, it shows soft wear and some character tarnish I have not disturbed. The stones in this pendant, back and front, are carnelian wrapped in rope bezels and the design with its lovely flowers is just naturally elegant. The necklace strand has old hand rough-cut carnelian beads, very rare, old faceted carnelian beads, trade beads and sterling silver crumb beads. This necklace can certainly be worn with pride, it is a true show-stopper.
