Wow these are huge! Big, bohemian statement earrings! These are vintage Afghan Kuchi earrings. Swinging, jewel toned mixed silver and golden brass metal beauties!! What a great pair of tribal earrings with tons of jeweled detail. These bohemian beauties consists of the mixed metals with pink fuchsia and emerald green glass inserts that sparkle with the light. The ear wire section is set with the jewels in a flower shape. The long crescents swing and sway. Little silver ball dangles add more detail. Great, huge pair of earrings for the hippie gypsy in you!
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.
