Beautiful, but small, old Tharu Kanthshri spike necklace. The inner circumference is barely 11 – most likely a small adult’s or even a child’s item. You could add longer ties, wear as anklet, armlet, add to body drape, etc. 26 spikes – three of which are missing the ball accent – the spikes that are missing the accent are smooth on the ends and well worn. Early 20th Century tribal Nepal Indian border jewelry. Kuchi/Kochi are not Hazaragi/Hazara, Turkmen, or Banjara these are very different tribes with distinctive artistic styles. Furthermore, Kuchi/Kochi are not the same as the Kutch people who are from Gujarat, India. The Kuchi/Kochi are known for their bright colored adornment and textiles. Their jewelry is not made from precious metals, but rather from German Silver or alpaca metal, which contains copper, zinc, and some other malleable metals. Many vintage items have a mix of original and replacement components. I always do my best to accurately describe items if they have obvious flaws or irregularities.
