Vintage Kashmiri Tribal Necklace with Large Pendant

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 pendant was sturdily made, encrusted with a vibrant red bead to ward off the evil eye.

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

The old pendant hangs on a traditional Kashmiri chain with ornate floral links (chinka) and charm dangles that clatter with movement.

There are some wear patterns and a warm age patina remaining after decades of time.

About KASHMIR: Kashmir is located in a lush valley in the foothills of the Himalayas...halfway between the Tibetan Plateau and the diverse sub-continent of India. It has an ancient and rich tribal heritage.

As a major stopping place along the old Silk Road trade route between East and West, Kashmir enjoyed a continual influx of goods and ideas from far and wide for centuries.
