Vintage Swati Tribal Necklace from Khyber Valley

This strikingly unusual vintage Chanda-Haar Necklace was handcrafted during the early 1900's in the lush Kashmir Valley at the base of the Himalayas in Central Asia. 

The distinctively-colored vibrant beads on the elaborate terminals and along the center front are characteristic of the old Swat tribal jewelry from that region. The deep-pink color mimics that of the beloved pomegranate - a luscious staple throughout this area.

Elaborate heart-shaped charm pendants hang from cascading rows of dramatic chains along the front. Small charms dangle freely - shaped like pipal tree leaves (the sacred fig (Bodhi) tree). 

The antiqued clasp at the back has been more recently added for a completely integrated look. This old tribal necklace is in excellent condition with a mild age patina that only the passage of time can create.

About the SWAT tribe: The Swat (Swati) are a Pashtun tribe from the Khyber Pass region located between Afghanistan and Pakistan at the base of the Himalayas. They are an ancient group, having lived in this region for hundreds of years. 

Their villages lie along the old Silk Road Trade Route which brought artistic influences from afar which can be seen in their unique jewelry and artwork.
