Vintage Tribal Pendant from Afghanistan for DIY Creations (#4276)
Lovely, vintage, Hazara pendant with a swirling floral pattern and both a red and blue setting. The face of the pendant has some discoloration. There are a series of puffy dangles along the bottom. All are intact and original. They are visibly aged and worn. The dangles make a quiet sound with movement - used to avert the evil eye. The jump rings are original and have been soldered closed. The color of the metal is a champagne tone - it is neither distinctly silver nor golden in appearance. The Hazara are Shia, in contrast to the Kuchi who are Sunni, and have a distinct culture that is all their own. This style of pendant is becoming increasingly hard to find in original condition.
