Afghan Necklace, Coins, Massive, Kuchi, Vintage Necklace, Middle Eastern, Patina, Chains, Dangles, Boho, Nomadic, Huge, Big, Jewels - image 1 of 7

What a fantastic vintage ethnic bohemian look! This is a vintage Afghan necklace that is loaded with mixed metal elements! Wear this as-is or separate it for elements for your own jewelry creations. The centerpiece pendant section features a massive, ornate metal medallion. This is set with yellow glass beads and green glass insets. Dangling down are tons of chains with little balls. These chime together when you move. Next look at all the detail work in the necklace section. A row of embossed, metal pieces march across the top. Hanging down are 6 coins pendants that are accented with both glass jewels and balled dangles. This is all attached to a woven fabric neck piece that closes with with button. This appears to have been replaced as some time as it is nice and clean. Fabulous look whether you want it for a costume or a massive statement for every day!

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.

Measurements: Length 2" long inside the necklace
Pendant: 4 1/2" long x 3" wide
Condition: Good vintage condition, heavy vintage patina - some yellow beads missing. Wear as-is, glue in some other jewels or us a file to remove the rest of them. This is reflected in the lower price.
Weight: 148.9 grams

Please examine enlarged photos for details and condition. This is much more beautiful in real life!

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.
