Vintage Tribal Pendant from Afghanistan Jewelry Supplies (#4283)
Vintage, Hazara pendant from Western Afghanistan. Beautiful, traditional design. There are a series of puffy dangles that make a quiet sound with movement - these appear original and intact. The jump rings are original and have been soldered closed. The color of the metal is slightly golden. Most of the dangles are also golden in color but a few are a light graphite color. 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. This would make a lovely necklace pendant, or a centerpiece on a headdress, tribal dance bra, or for your other creations.
