One of a kind pieces from my collection,  a wonderful  Old Silver Necklace, probably coming from North Afghan Uzbek group.  This piece has been made in the first half of the XX century.

 This piece has an amuletic value. Central Asia women have the pre-islamic tradition of carrying amulets to protect themselves. Also jewellery has an enormous financial importance for the women and refers to her status on the society.

The colorful glass backing in burgundy colour, and the center of the pendant with false granulation can be classified as   Kazak style. The fire gilding applique in all the pendants, made with gold dust, gives the piece a superbe elegant style.

Measures are:  134 grms, total length 66 cm. The big central pendant is 6cm by 7 cm width.

Price is 860 euros.
