Vintage Kuchi Tribal Jewelry Necklace from Kashmir

This tribal jewelry necklace has 3 old Kashmiri pendants that were handcrafted during the early 1900's for the nomadic Kuchi tribe. They have classic Kashmiri incised designs and a rich age patina accumulated over decades of time.

The center pendant is flanked on each side with a more recently beaded tassel. It has a fringe of charm dangles along the lower edge, that clatter together with movement.

The bands have 2 old Kuchi beads and hand-beaded colorful panels running up the sides. It slides over the head to wear.

About the KUCHI: The Kuchi are a nomadic tribal group of people who have lived in Central Asia for centuries. They were inveterate traders, who often traveled great distances along the Old Silk Road, linking goods and ideas between the East and West.

Kuchi jewelry and clothing is renowned for its vibrant energy, exuberant colors, and creative spirit. They frequently adopted the colorful jewelry and clothing from the areas they traveled through, giving their wardrobes a delightfully eccentric look.

About Kashmir: Kashmir is a lush valley located in the foothills of the Himalayas. Situated 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 central stopping place on the old Silk Road trade route between East and West, with an ancient and rich tribal heritage.
