Vintage Himachal Pradesh Pendant

Vintage Himachal Pradesh Pendant


It is not very often that you come across pendants like this - early to mid 20th century old silver (50-80%) pendant worn by the women in the Himachal Pradesh State in northern India.

The jewelers of Kangra, Chamba, Mandi and Kullu were famous for their silver jewellery skills. Kangra was the kingdom of Rajput in earlier days. They mainly worked with silver. The pendant is still in very good condition.

The arrowhead form pendant has a double bale and can be strung on a single or a double strand. There is a row of decorative bells around the bottom of the pendant and a stylized "Tree of Life" in the center.

You will note that there is one floral unit missing on the right hand side of the pendant.
