Unique Kashmiri Kuchi Ceremonial Necklace

This unusual old ceremonial necklace was handcrafted in the lush Kashmir Valley during the early to mid-1900's.

It is an old tribal jewelry necklace - not a new reproduction.

The intricate details on the pendant are characteristically Kashmiri, with its swirling floral designs and heart-shaped center.

The heart motif extends to the chain, with its unusual repeating-heart links.

Classic charm dangles hang below, clattering together with movement.

The pendant is 3-dimensional and hollow,  making it fairly lightweight despite its large size.

Kashmiri necklaces this ornate were traditionally worn at celebrations and/or ceremonies, which could last for days - or longer.

This one-of-a-kind Kashmir Kuchi necklace has mild wear patterns and a warm age patina remaining after many decades of time.

Comes in a gift box.

    Pendant dimensions = 5-3/4 inches long x 3-1/2 inches wide x 1/4 inch

About KASHMIR: Kashmir is a lush valley located in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is renowned for its ancient and rich tribal heritage.

Halfway between the Tibetan Plateau and the diverse sub-continent of India, the Kashmir Valley has often been called “Heaven on Earth.”

It was a major stopping place along the old Silk Road trade routes that linked good and ideas between the East and the West.

Today Kashmir is tragically embroiled in the turmoil that consumes much of this region. Old jewelry like this celebrates a gentler time of creative energy from the past. ©
