Beautiful Afghan necklace from the Kutch Nomadic Tribes. These vintage necklaces consist of a mix of brass, metal beads, coins, stones, trinkets, coloured glass and beads attached to cord and secured with a button. Whilst some may be similar in style each is unique representing the original maker and wearer.
This choker style necklace is based on flat black fabric with cord which is tied behind the neck. Approximately 40cm in length. As these items are vintage and hand made there may sometimes be irregularities, and imperfections such as missing pieces. We believe this is indicative of the character and essence vintage gypsy items. Please see picture as part of item description.
The story of Kuchi jewellery.
Like all tribal jewellery, Kuchi jewellery is influenced by many different cultures. These beautiful pieces with colourful glass jewels and jingling bells originally came from the nomadic Pashtoon tribes that wandered the border areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The word Kuchi is derived from a Persian word meaning migration, as in that of nomads or gypsies. The jewellery of these wandering peoples incorporates design elements from many cultures including those of India, the Middle East, Central Asia and the tribal areas of the former Soviet Union. These jewelry artists used coins, bells, and large colorful glass jewels to produce lovely chokers, necklaces, cuff bracelets, pendants, belts, rings, earrings, headpieces and more completely by hand, often in centuries-old designs. These pieces sometimes incorporated beadwork or embroidery.
