Turkomen tribes live in the modern countries of Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan and Turkey.  The Ersari are a subgroup of the Turkmen.  The Turkomen, or Turkmen, were traditionally pastoral nomads who lived in encampments, raised livestock, bred horses, and occasionally plundered settled areas.  Turkmen silver jewelry carries deep symbolic meanings and often marks an individual’s passage from one stage of life to another. Turkmen jewelry is often large and heavy.
