Item details

This item includes the set of 6 vintage Kashmiri Kuchi beads as pictured. ($2 per bead)

These old tribal beads were sturdily handcrafted in the early to mid-1900's for the nomadic Kuchi tribe in the Kashmir Valley at the base of the Himalayas.

Mild wear patterns and a warm age patina remain from decades of time. They are wonderful accents for tribal jewelry making, or worn on a strand by themselves.

Price includes all 6 beads.

Bead size = 12 mm x 10 mm

Additional policies

About TRIBAL JEWELRY: Handcrafted Tribal Jewelry is rarely uniformly shaped or exactly symmetrical such as with machine-crafted jewelry, and may often have missing pieces, wear patterns, or debris.

Many of these pieces have traveled around the world from village to village, and generation to generation. These irregularities are part of the charm and heritage acquired over that long time-spent journey.

I sell these old tribal pieces with their patina (if any) intact, since collectors value it so highly. Patina can usually be easily removed after purchase with a mild jewelry cleaner, if desired

Tribal Muse does not own nor sell any archaeological relics or items deemed National Treasures, as such articles rightfully belong to the people of the country in which they were found.
