The jewelry was crafted both for cosmetic and spiritual reasons, and the amount of jewelry an individual adorned themselves with was equated to the person's rank in society.
This type of Jewelry was used as a way to establish one's rank in Turkmen society. According to art historian Layla Diba, Turkmen jewelry was created for and worn by all ranks of Turkmen society, from Khans to those at subsistence level. It was believed that, by wearing jewelry set with precious stones early in her life, a young woman could increase her fertility.
After giving birth, a woman would then slowly decrease the amount of jewelry she wore as she aged. Dresses were also made with patterns designed to compliment the style of the wearer's jewelry.
