A nice set of of Kuchi or Sindh old silver earrings from Afghanistan. They show a nice granulation work on the edges and a simple yet attractive decoration. The 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. Their jewellery is quite often very colourful using silver, glass and, in some fewer cases, enamel.
