This is a vintage Kuchi tribal bracelet from Afghanistan. This beauty is inlaid with a blue lapis lazuli composite stone. A large ova one in the center and is accented with oval ones on each side. This kuchi piece is made with silver metal with brass accents. It has an ornate tribal pattern. It is nice and wide in the front but tapers to the back so that it is more comfortable to wear.
