What an incredible, massive, great bohemian statement look! If you are looking for a piece for a belly dancing costume, or just adore wearing a one-of-a-kind statement, this necklace will sure be one to do that! This is a vintage Nomadic Afghan necklace with tons of coin pendants and dangles to wear as-is or separate into individual pieces for jewelry making. There are 7 big dangle pendants with vintage coins. They have chain dangles with three dimensional charms hanging down that jingle as they move. Jeweled glass inserts in red, blue and green add a pop of color. This is all strung on a soft fabric cording that is wrapped with blue seed beads. This ties in the back. You could alway stitch loops in the back and add jump rings for a chain or clasp too. Amazing statement!
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.
