Kashmiri shield-shaped pendants. 6 and 6.5 inches long from bales to bottom of dangles, and 4.25 and 4.75 inches wide. Metal color is very slightly brassy and tarnished. The chased design on these pendants is matching. Kashmiri pendants are beautifully detailed and perfect for tribal costuming uses. This is a lovely set.
This pendant has a "chased" design. Chasing on metal is the technique of detailing the front surface of a jewelry piece with various hammer-struck punches. The pattern is indented into the metal.
The Kashmir is a region of the northwestern India. It is bounded by the Uygur Autonomous Region of Xinjiang to the northeast and the Tibet Autonomous Region to the east (both parts of China), by the Indian states of Himachal-Pradesh and Punjab to the south, by Pakistan to the west, and by Afghanistan to the northwest and personal adorment from this region reflects the influences of all of these areas while still retaining it's own unique jewelry traditions.
