A superb pair of Afghan Kuchi old silver, red coral and turquoise large hoops. They show a detailed silver work that evidences the mastery of the silversmith that made them. They are particularly eye-catching the turquoise and coral cabochons and the elaborate design of the chains from which beautiful red coral beads are suspended. Pieces of this quality are hard to come by nowadays. Kuchi people, from the Persian -koch- meaning migration, are Afghan pashtoons nomads divided in a number of tribes that inhabit areas of Afghanistan and, to a lesser extent, Pakistan.
