|A colorful starburst disk shows the robust design typical of mountainous areas in the Republic of Georgia and in neighboring Dagestan and beyond in Central Asia. This large (5 inch diameter) piece, from Khevsureti, an eastern province in the Republic of Georgia, has been fitted with a long silver chain for use as a pendant but resembles in both size and design similar disks we have seen used as belt closings in regions of the Causasus and Central Asia. Unidentified stones in green, amber and brown are interspersed with patterns created by piercing and overlay work. This spirited example of early 20th century tribal jewelry is in perfect condition. The disk is 5” (13 cm) in diameter.|
