Vintage Kashmiri Tribal Necklace with 2 Large Pendants

This vintage tribal jewelry necklace was handcrafted during the early to mid-1900's for the nomadic Kuchi tribe in the region of the Kashmir Valley at the base of the Himalayas.

This is old tribal jewelry - not a new reproduction.

The large pendants were sturdily made, encrusted with a vibrant beads to ward off the evil eye.

The incised floral designs are characteristics of Kashmiri jewelry, as is the bird-in-flight silhouette of the pendant.

The old pendants hang on traditional Kashmiri chains with ornate floral links (chinka) and charm dangles that clatter with movement.

More recent twisted-silk ties allow for adjusting length as desired.

Wear patterns and a warm age patina remain after decades of time.
