The Kuchi nomad jewelry offered here is old and antique, handmade, sometimes very filigree folklore jewelry from Afghanistan. Old colored glass was used to embellish the jewelry pieces. After years of use off the logs, it is natural that there may be dark streaks in the pieces, stones may be missing, the glass may be pitted or scratched from desert storms, and small particles may be missing. Bear in mind that it may have traveled far - from nomads on mountains and deserts to Kabul and now to us!
