Look at the bold decoration and detail on this large diamond shaped pendant! A vibrant red-orange central rounded stone is centered in the pendant, framed by a plain mount on top. Look closer and you will see a patterned background accented with a wash of gold, and oxidation on the pendant makes all of the details pop! This pendant looks great on a leather cord or silver chain.

The piece is completely hand constructed, with hand cut embellishments soldered on. It does show wear, both on the front and in back. A thin layer of gold leafing accents the middle of the pendant.

Estimated age: 20-40 years

Afghanistan has been at the heart of the crossroads for the Silk Road for centuries. Nomads and generations of ethnic groups have thrived on trade and beautiful handicraft skills. Textiles, embroidery and carpet weaving continue to represent a plethora of skills that extend on into metal work, wood work, and ceramics. Designs reflect both the beauty of nature and life of spirit in choice of colors and fluidity of the design.

Afghan Tribal Arts has been working with Afghan artists for more than 20 years. Handcarved semi-precious beads are the core focus of the business, but we also have a huge inventory of old and new textiles, carvings and metal work. Visit our shop here on Etsy to see our beautiful treasures!
