Vintage Afghan Kuchi Tribal Jewellery Pendants Pair with Beaded Band

This is a PAIR of vintage Afghan Kuchi tribal jewelry pendants that were traditionally worn along the side of the head at the temples.

Giving the illusion of long exotic earrings, they were attached to head pieces, veils, or directly to the hair to sway and jangle when the head moved.

These pendants were sturdily handcrafted in Central Asia during the mid-1900's for the nomadic Kuchi tribe. They have classic Kashmiri styling, with their multi-ring backs and long clattering chains.

The brightly beaded chain links the two pendants so that they fall in exactly the right spot along the face every time. There are mild wear patterns and a warm age patina remains from years of time.

Measurements:  (1 inch = 2.54 cm)
    Weight = 10.2 oz per pair
    Shipping weight = 15 oz
    Size each pendant= 13 inches long x 4 inches wide
    Beaded band = 11 inches long
    Material = Metal, Glass beads

About the KUCHI: The Kuchi are a nomadic group of people living throughout Central Asia. For centuries they have traveled freely across international boundaries in the Middle East and Central Asia.

Kuchi jewelry and clothing is renowned for its vibrant energy, exuberant colors, and creative spirit.
