What an incredible, massive, old, 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 ten big dangle pendants with vintage coins. The coins have jewels pieces on top of them. Colors are pink and green. They have round ball shaped chain dangles hanging down. This is all strung on a soft thick cording that is wrapped with blue glass seed bead. This closed in the back with a button clasp. This piece is old. I have not cleaned it so it still has it's original patina including desert dust. 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.
