Classic Central Asian Turkmen ring with turquoise and red stone
A classic Turkoman design- very pagan and very nomadic in its appeal. This fabulous ring is set with a red stone in the center which apparently protects from miscarriage and helps with bleeding wounds, flanked by two turquoises which offer protection against the evil eye. A perfect tribal find, from a land far away- minus all the travel. We promise not to tell. :)

Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
