The Turkoman cultural group has been present in Central Asia since the 19th Century, throughout areas including Iran, Turkmenistan, and Afghanistan. Turkoman jewelry represents an important part of Islamic cultural heritage.

The headpiece is primarily made of silver, which is intricately crafted to create an ornate and decorative piece. The silver used is often of high purity, and the headpiece may feature additional elements such as gemstones, enamel, or glass accents for added embellishment.

Turkoman headpieces are known for their elaborate and distinctive designs. They are typically large and cover a significant portion of the wearer's forehead and sometimes extend to the sides of the head. The design often includes multiple tiers or layers of silverwork, each featuring intricate engravings, filigree work, or symbolic motifs.
