Great bohemian look! Wear this on it's own or layer it with more necklaces for a big statement. Done in traditional style, the vintage coins hang from a black cotton woven neckpiece that closes with a button. The coin pendants are done in mixed metal and include colored glass cabochons in pieces for a pop of color in jewel tone shades of hot pink, red, amber and green. The necklace is accented with hand made metal beads. A unique mixture of metal dangles hang down for some fun movement.
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.
