Silver Pendant, Uzbekistan
Most likely used on a belt or collar, this large, lacy starburst has five circular silver designs centered with a pink stone. The back side of the starburst is centered with a sturdy loop through which fabric or leather may have been pulled as part of a ceremonial costume. For typical week-long wedding celebrations and other festivities in Uzbekistan, Uzbek women still wear intricate tribal jewelry such as this piece. A long antique silver chain has been attached to the top of the starburst so that it can be worn as a pendant. We estimate the age of this piece to be early 20th century. The starburst is 3-1/3" in diameter; the chain is 30-1/4" in length.
