Carpet Collection

As the first Azerbaijani jewelry brand, Resm Jewelry has recently presented its unique collection inspired by ornaments and designs of Azerbaijani carpets.

This item is inspired by Aypara (crescent) - one of the oldest symbols known to humanity. Together with the sun, it appeared on Akkadian and Sumerian images.

The crescent and star also appear on pre- Islamic coins of South Arabia. Before Islam the crescent was the symbol of Sassanids.
Since the 12th century the crescent and the star were adopted by the Turks and the Ottomans and have become their historical symbol. Turkic nations such as the Göktürks used the crescent and star fiqure on their coins.

The crescent and star are on the flag of Azerbaijan. They were often an inspiration for antique Azerbaijani jewellery.
