Vintage pair of Kuchi wire hoop earrings with small glass jewels and bell dangles.  About 3.5 inches total length (includes earwires) and 1/2 inch wide.  Flattened hoops with hook closure at the top.  Chain dangles with bells.  Fairly lightweight.  These could be worn in piercings if you have worn large or heavy earrings for a while, but they could also be attached to a headpiece or used on other costuming pieces.  The wires are a bit larger than western ear wires at about a 12 to 14 gauge.   Please note that these are USED earrings and the wires should be thoroughly cleaned before wearing through piercings.     

The story of Kuchi jewelry, like all tribal jewelry, is rich with influences from many cultures.  These beautiful pieces with colorful glass jewels and jingling bells originally came from the nomadic Pashtoon tribes that wandered the border areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan, along ancient routes between the seasons, moving down from the mountains in the winter and back to their homes in the summer. The word Kuchi itself is derived from a Persian word meaning migration, in relation to nomads or gypsies, and does not describe a particular group or people, but rather a state of being.
