ANTIQUE NECKLACE RED
The story of Kuchi jewelry, like all tribal jewelry, is rich with influences from many cultures.
These beautiful pieces with colorful glass jewels and jingling bells originally came from the nomadic Pashtoon tribes that wandered the border areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan, along ancient routes between the seasons, moving down from the mountains in the winter and back to their homes in the summer. The word Kuchi itself is derived from a Persian word meaning migration, in relation to nomads or gypsies, and does not describe a particular group or people, but rather a state of being.
The rich and fascinating history of this ancient tribe is reflected through exotic Afghan jewellery pieces that radiate tribal energy, exuberant colour and creative artistry.
A glamourous homage to the Afghan Kuchi nomads, this mesmerising collection carries the spirit of an ancient gypsy tribe through to the present day.
Please note that due to the antique nature of this jewelry, some beads might be missing and there could be imperfections.
