These Asyk motif earrings are typical of the Turkmen Tekke tribe, with designs of stylized birds wings and flames highlighted by gold-gild over silver. The large center carnelian bead is set in a raised bezel, perched there to ward off the evil eye and invigorate the wearer.

They are given to tribal women as engagement and wedding gifts by well-wishers, while also contributing to the bride's personal wealth.
