Worn by Kuchi tribeswomen for hundreds of years in Afghanistan, these pieces are difficult to find except in old collections. As was the tradition, this piece has black fabric backing and black cloth cord that was recently attached before its sale for tying around the neck.
This is a classic Kuchi tribal Afghan metal choker necklace, with mostly chain metal dangles and three small sets of inset colored glass "beads." The chain dangles are all attached to solid articulated metal bars that form the top band of the necklace.
Stunningly gorgeous and not at all as heavy as it looks!,this necklace is the ultimate statement necklace for all bohemian lovers!
