Vintage Kuchi Tribal Choker Crescent Moon HEAVY Jewelry (#6569)
Amazing and beautiful, Kuchi tribal choker from Khost, Afghanistan with crescent moon motifs; the crescent moon is a common symbol on tribal items. The choker is very heavy - this weighs 1 pound 10 ounces! It's loaded with embellishments and lovely accents. The embellishments are old and worn, but appear to be intact. The width of the choker, not including the ties, is 12.5". It has an updated lining and two ties that are 7" each. This gives you an additional 14" to adjust this to your size. From top to bottom this measures 9". This is in beautiful condition - an amazing find. It is a vintage item so there are indications of age, including worn metal with smooth edges, oxidation, and some possible replacement settings on the smaller components. Once you put this on you'll feel the history and beauty of this lovely adornment; it's large, dramatic, and stunning. The choker makes a jingle with movement to both announce your arrival, and to ward off the evil eye.
