Fantastic old bracelet! This is a vintage Afghan Kuchi hinged cuff bracelet. The cuff is made from a mixture of silver metals with a heavy aged patina. Check the spire raises from your wrist! This is a three dimensional piece. The inside is hollow so you don't have all of the weight. This has a rustic ornate metal work on it. This is set with glass jewels in ruby red and emerald green. This would also make a unique pendant hanging from leather! It fits a small wrist so please checked the measurements. I have not cleaned this as the patina is very heavy. Fabulous old piece!

Please keep in mind that most Kuchi and Turkoman / Turkmen / Turkomen items are old and used items with a distinct aged patina. They are a nomadic Afghan people who have created amazing jewelry for centuries. Their colorful jewelry combines new, old, metal, beads, coins, stones and fabric. Many pieces are worn due to being used from every day wear, tribal celebrations, belly dance and wedding uses. They are made with a coin-base metal alloy.
Please examine enlarged photos for details. Much more beautiful in real life.
I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
