persian jewelry

Two Persian bracelets of gold and turquoise with terminals in the shape of birds. While the bracelets are modern, dating to the 19th-20th centuries, the style reflects the jewelry of the Seljuks, a Turkish dynasty which ruled a vast empire in Western Asia during the 11th to 13th centuries CE.
