Description

A stunning tribal Afghan necklace with layered tiers of beautiful turquoise coloured pendants. The pendants are joined by small metal alloy and wooden beads, finished with hook and ring closure.

Is incredibly difficult to describe the real beauty of this piece. Needs to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.


One size

This necklace design is hundreds of years old with very little modification, what you are seeing is prehistoric jewellery designs these nomadic people's ancestors used to wear and they are still keeping their culture alive. Making each of these necklaces is painstakingly hard work, chaining each & every bead together one by one. What you are seeing in the photo gallery is a reflection of centuries old art, living in Afghanistan where these nomadic people spend their entire lives travelling.

Perfect accent for a tribal belly dance costume, or as a fashionable hippie boho signature statement piece. A perfect chance to buy a bit of Afghani history.

Free 2nd class postage to anywhere in the UK and free pack of incense with every order!

I offer the security of signed and tracked postage for an extra charge of £3. Let me know if this is what you would like before purchasing and I will add it to the listing :)

"The Kuchi nomadic women do not wear burqas. They are fiercely independent, usually wreathed in silver necklaces and dressed in spangling embroidery, and they stare boldly back from atop their camels when you cross them on the roads. It's their custom to go unveiled, and because the Taliban Vice and Virtue Police usually stay in the towns, and the Kuchis have ferocious dogs and even more ferocious husbands, these nomad women are left alone."

Kuchi jewelry, like the jewelry of India and other tribal places and peoples, often incorporates jewels of transparent colored glass set in and backed with foil to reflect light in every shade of the rainbow. Shining mirrors, metallic thread, colorful beads, pom poms, cloves and other fragrant materials, bright fabrics and thousands of different kinds of dangles and bells also serve to attract the eye and ward off evil spirits.
