Vintage Tribal Cuff Bracelet
These antique cuff bracelets with either a Lapis Lazuli or turquoise color Howlite gemstone center originate from Afghanistan and features the intricate design work of the Kuchi, a nomadic tribe known for creating vibrant jewelry, beadwork and clothing. A wonderful piece to add to your boho jewelry collection.
- Size: The vintage cuff is approximately 7 inches round and may be squeezed lightly to tighten the fit.
- Dimensions: The cuff is 1 3/4 inches wide front and center and tapers to a 1/2 inch.
- Kuchi Tribal Jewelry: The bracelet is not gold or sterling silver, though it has a similar look with some patina. Kuchi jewelry is generally made with a brass base known as “gillet” metal. The base is about 75% – 80% brass with either copper, silver, iron or all of these metals mixed in. Then a thick silver plating is buffed on the surface and can last for years.
- About Vintage/Antique Jewelry: A few of the inlayed stones are missing, however this does not effect the beauty, nor durability. VT respects the history of its vintage pieces and does not alter or make repairs with modern materials.
