Large Vibrant Waziri Kuchi Vintage Tribal Jewelry Necklace

This dramatic large tribal jewelry choker was handcrafted during the early to mid-1900's for the nomadic Waziri Kuchi tribe in Afghanistan. Colorful beaded pendants rim the collar above extra-long chain dangles with clattering bells on their ends.

This large vintage Kuchi Necklace has a more recent black cotton lining added for comfort. Ties on each side allow for adjusting the length as desired.  Excellent condition with a warm age patina giving it a sheen that only the passage of time can produce. 

About Waziristan: Once part of the opulent Mughal Empire, Waziristan now belongs to the Tribal Areas in eastern Afghanistan and northwestern Pakistan. It was named after the Wazir tribe who lived there for centuries. Like so many other regions in this part of the world, Waziristan has experienced years of recent turmoil and difficulties, especially in its more remote areas. Its prior heritage, however, was that of wonderfully vibrant arts and skillfully crafted jewelry like this necklace.
