Vintage pair of Kashmiri jhumka or chandelier style earrings with chain dangles and jewels.  About 3.5 inches total length (includes earwires) and 7/8 of an inch wide. The wires are much larger than western ear wires at about a 10 gauge and are possibly a bit thicker.  Wear through tunnels or attach to a headpiece.  Very nicely made, older pieces.  Good craftsmanship.  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.
