How old is this necklace pendant? I was told over 50-75 years old or so, made before the Soviets occupation of Afghanistan perhaps made in the 1950s or so. So, that means before 1979. Approximately 50 years or more. Don't know the exact year. But, they are difficult to find like this jewelry. Only some people in the villages in northern Afghanistan may have them particularly like Jowzjan province of Afghanistan and district of Aqcha. But, no one make these anymore. They are well made in terms of quality despite they are very old.
Tribal Jewelry may have some wears & tears, missing beads or glasses, dangles, miss-match of pairs, dirt, defects, flaws and imperfections..etc. In most part vintage means things that are old and may not be in perfect condition. So, please look at the images carefully before purchasing. I took several images and very close up photos are taken to show you exactly what you will be receiving.
Actual item may differ slightly than the image due to image quality, lightening, Contrasts, resolutions, and other factors. However, in most cases, actual items look better than the images.
