This is a vintage Kuchi tribal bracelet from Afghanistan. This beauty is inlaid with a large round black agate aqeeq stone in the center and is accented with smaller round ones on each side. Glass accents in turquoise blue and red add a pop of color. This Kuchi piece is made with silver metal with an ornate dimensional tribal pattern. It is nice and wide in the front but tapers to the back so that it is more comfortable to wear. Lots of ornate detailed pattern on this one! Let your bohemian style fly free with this beauty!
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.

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.
