Hi I have a crown like this for sale now if you would like to see it. It was published and has a dedication for a wedding on the reverse with a date. Let me know if you would like to see it.
I wouldn't go to buy jewellery in Uzbekistan as (a) very little of it is for sale (b) there is a problem taking it out of the country (c) little is to be found for sale anyway but you can see exquisite examples in their many museums, particularly if you visit all of the ancient cities. However on the other hand you can still buy fantastic textiles. I bought the best suzani hanging off the back of my bus when we were leaving a market. $100.00 - valued back here at over a $1000.00 - not that this is relevant. I love the colours a selection of blues rather than traditional ones of clarets and reds.
and i buy them in a reasonable price.cheers!i will treasre them
lol.thax patricia.the samll piece i wanna use as pendant.and if i go to uzbek to buy jewerly i think i will wear all of them ,lol,in case of take trouble.
hi,if u dont mind ,u can share nice items with us,Jan
I did buy one special piece in Uzbekistan in Tashkent and worried about it until I left. I don't know what its history is - I might get myself organised and take a photo and put it up
The top pic is a diadem the golden eyebrows, the bottom pic is an earring or temporal. These at this time are difficult to find although Marlene of ethnic-silver does have some interesting Uzbek pieces on her website. You can find some pieces of old jewelry in Uzbekistan for very high prices but getting them out of the country is another thing altogether. It seemed to me when I was there that luggage was rather randomly searched for artifacts but the thought that somebody would confiscate anything I bought put me off on trying to buy jewelry.
Jan ,u means even the jewellery i show u cant too?omg,hard to belive!
I went on a textile tour through Uzbekistan and, of course, tried to find some interesting jewellery. You are not allowed to take anything of importance out of the country!!!!! Very, very protective of what they consider what belongs to their country stays in their country.
I shall look for mor in October when I am travelling in Morocco again
