This beautiful, tribal, hand carved malachite stone ring is great for every day wear and is special enough for momentous occasions. Newly handmade with genuine malachite from Afghanistan, by Afghan (Kuchi) refugee craftsmen relocated to Peshawar.
While the Kuchi are of the Pashtun tribe originating from southeastern Afghanistan near the border of Pakistan, they are nomadic, accustomed to moving semi-annually with their herds between summer pastures in Afghanistan and winter pastures in Pakistan. "Kuchi" is a Baluchistan word meaning "nomadic" or "wandering". We have only one of these rings in stock and the size is estimated to be approximately size 11 or 64.7mm interior diameter. The malachite design is continued on the sides, in silver-toned metal bezels. Unique and original.
