This jewellery is tribal jewellery and made by hand. Some of the stones are a little rough, but this adds to the ethnic look. But there are no rough edges on the setting at all.
The setting is not silver but it is a lookalike - very nice. They call it gypsy, German or gilt silver. The traditional form of making jewelry pieces was by melting down coins so while I know it has some silver content I have no idea how much. The small brown beads inter spaced are rosewood.
The necklace was hand made by Kuchi Pashtuns a nomadic peoples in what is now Afghanistan. It's probably from the Logar region.
All of these pieces are unique and a chunk of history of a people whose lives have been threatened from every angle.
