This beautiful colourful lot of 24 Vintage Kuchi Rings were hand-crafted during the mid 1900's with detailed bands made by using melted down metals such as tin, brass, nickel if silver wasn’t affordable at the time inlaid with a beautiful vibrant red, blue, green, pink, orange, brown glass and colorful stones. These rings have the classic Kuchi tribal jewellery style that has been popular in this region for centuries. The design is so time-honored that it keeps its strong appeal even today. These rings are becoming harder and harder to source these days. 

This lot would be perfect for a seller who has a stand at markets. Or someone who just adores Kuchi jewellery. I sell these rings for £12 - £25 each so grab a bargain! So many still have sand from the deserts they traveled across stuck inside them. Has to be the most beautiful batch of rings i've seen in all of my years of collecting Kuchi jewellery. 

They all vary in weight. 

Sizes vary from small to large.

"The Kuchi nomadic women do not wear burqas. They are fiercely independent, usually wreathed in silver necklaces and dressed in spangling embroidery, and they stare boldly back from atop their camels when you cross them on the roads. It's their custom to go unveiled, and because the Taliban Vice and Virtue Police usually stay in the towns, and the Kuchis have ferocious dogs and even more ferocious husbands, these nomad women are left alone." 

Kuchi jewelry, like the jewelry of India and other tribal places and peoples, often incorporates jewels of transparent colored glass set in and backed with foil to reflect light in every shade of the rainbow. Shining mirrors, metallic thread, colorful beads, pom poms, cloves and other fragrant materials, bright fabrics and thousands of different kinds of dangles and bells also serve to attract the eye and ward off evil spirits.
