This is a spectacular, massive old vintage tribal bracelet. This beauty is inlaid with orangish red jewel cabochons. The wide hinged cuff is layers of patterned and pierced mixed metal . The metal has a combination of silver, copper and bronze shades. This has a hinge that closes with a pin clasp to make it easier to get on and off. I love all the pattern this one has! Cut outs are accented with ornate pattern. The metal "fringe" is quite dimensional on this. Please check the measurements to make sure this will fit. Fabulous!
As with many of my vintage nomadic bracelets, I was able to buy a matching pair of these. This is for one of them, but if you want one for each wrist, check out the other listing too!
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.
