Large Old Tribal Jewelry Ornate Shirshiri Necklace from Kashmir

This extraordinary old tribal jewelry necklace was handcrafted during the mid to early 1900's in the lush Kashmir Valley at the base of the Himalayas. It is a traditional Kashmiri ceremonial shirshiri style, with multiple small charm-pendants fluttering on woven chains across the bodice. 

A large heart-shaped Kashmiri pendant in the center is incised with floral patterns, and a bright red eye-shaped bead has been added to the center, almost as an afterthought. The chains along the sides are generously laden with bell-fringed bell caps, which clatter together for a wonderful sound with movement.

A warm age patina remains, giving this necklace a glow that only the passage of time can create. Recently added ties allow for adjusting the length as desired.
