Really unique Kuchi choker from Afghanistan or Pakistan, has a mix of glittery purple and red, really unusual for these pieces!

The base on this choker is approx 1 1/4" wide & 11 1/2" long with two thin yarn ties for closure. The pendants have an approx 3" long drop from the base. The base is made from a coin metal alloy referred to as gillet & lined in thin red velvet like fabric. There are mostly foil back glass with a mix of several faceted round pieces made of glass and/or plastic .

This piece is missing one of the triangular pieces on the center base & one of the faceted pieces on one of the center pendants. I would recommend using red glitter & glass or plastic to replace the base piece & another faceted gem to replace the missing one, usually available at craft stores. It may appear that some of the round pendant pieces are missing at the bottom, but this is just due to reflections in the photos.

The older pieces have been worn & reflect years of loving use. You can expect worn fabric, an occasional missing bell, stone or coin, dings & dents. This patina is part of their attraction & beauty.

These pieces have a wonderful folkloric look & are perfect for tribal dancers or accoutrements to wear at burning man or other festivals! These older collars are getting more difficult to come across, more & more of the machined pieces are coming out of these areas.

I have lots more Banjara, Afghani/Kuchi, Tuareg & other Tribal Pieces available, please ask if you are looking for something in particular! I have more necklaces right now that are very similar in design and color if you are looking for matching ones for troupes!

Shipping on this piece will be shipped via small pkg flat rate priority.

I am happy to combine shipping for multiple items! The combined shipping costs are based on the purchase of the same size items, so if you purchase a smaller item, the shipping will be less.
