I love these big vintage, Middle Eastern hoops! Looking for a huge statement for your ears? This pair is certainly that! These are Kuchi Afghan nomad earrings that have a fabulous, pattern to them. Enormous and long at over 3", these are meant to be seen! The earrings are crescent moon in shape. They an etched pattern in the crescent that is set in the center with red enamel inlay. Tons of ball metal dangle charms shimmy and shake. Fabulous finds!
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.
