We discovered this pair of antique Turkoman silver bracelets on a trip to Ladakh, in the high desert of the Indian Himalaya. Ladakh has a fabulous mixture of cultures as it is at the confluence of Islamic and Buddhist cultures. People have wandered across the Himalayas and through the deep valleys for ages. These 19th century sterling silver bracelets with carnelian were originally plated in gold, and now have a beautiful luster. They are from the Tekkie tribe of northern Afghanistan or southern Turkmenistan and made their journey to Ladakh sometime over the past century.
You will make quite a powerful statement when you wear these fabulous bracelets and will have a great story to go with them!
This antique Tibetan necklace is highlighted by the wonderful dual 'Tiger Claw' pendant. The handmade sterling silver pendant is inlaid with turquoise and coral and age has brought a beautiful luster. The rest of the coral and turquoise necklace perfectly complements this central pendant.
This stunning antique necklace is a one-of-a-kind cultural masterpiece!
