Item details

4 beads-

This style bead is highly collectible and is from the Baluchi people who are an ethnic sub-group from Turkmenistan. Baluch is a common term used to designate nomadic tribes found in Western Afghanistan and as far north as Turkmenistan.

These are fabricated from a base metal of unknown alloy; they are quite old, most likely from the middle to early part of the 20th Century. Please keep in mind these are vintage and may be in less than perfect condition. All will have a patina consistent with their age.

Additional policies

Many of the things you will find in my shop are vintage, ethnic items. Please keep in mind that these are often made by primitive people under primitive circumstances and are rarely what we would consider to be perfect. There may be mismatched jewels, a definite patina and often there are irregularities in the metal. This is common and should be expected with this type of jewelry. I leave the patina in place for those who prefer an aged appearance. Most items can be polished with a mild jewelry cleaner if that is your preference.
