Old Kashmiri Bib 13.5" Choker Original Condition Beautiful Tribal Jewelry SMALL (#8777)
This is an amazing Kashmiri bib choker in original condition - i.e. it hasn't been restrung. The caveat? It's small - this fastens with a button and loop at 13.5". Please measure your neck before purchasing. It's also quite heavy and weighs just under 1 pound/448 grams. The string is visibly aged with years of use and wear visible but it remains intact. There are five diamond-shape pendants with dangles. The pendant faces are about 1/4 tall. Every symbol - the flowers, the shape of the pendants and dangles, infinity sign, the sound of the jingling dangles - are all meant to further the level of protection. A few of the settings/jewels are replacements but everything else appears original. Beautiful beautiful beautiful and authentic. I am not sure of the specific age - not quite antique (over 100-year's) but the surface wear indicates over 50 year's or more, in my opinion. The metal color is not quite silver nor golden.
Different monitors and phone apps show colors differently. I do my best to accurately document color using both photos and written descriptions. If you have any questions, please send me a message.
