Old Afghan Kuchi Tribal Jewelry Fishes Necklace

This fascinating old necklace was handcrafted by the Afghan Kuchi during the early 1900's for the nomadic Kuchi tribe. It has lots of clattering dangles shaped into ornate fish charms. 

In many tribal cultures, including throughout Central Asia, fish are highly revered. They are associated with water, and water - as a life-giving element - is associated with positive feminine attributes. The large fish on this necklace resemble carp, which also symbolize a life of abundance and prosperity for the lucky wearer.

A colorfully beaded pendant hangs in the center, complementing the 3 beaded central fish dangles. Classic Kuchi tribal jewelry round amulets hang at the end of each fish, adding balance and beauty. Slides over the neck. There are wear patterns on the cording at the back.

This necklace has a rich age patina giving it a glow that only the passage of time can create. It is a one-of-a-kind collectible piece of old Kuchi tribal jewelry.
