    Central Asian Gold Nose Ring (Arabek)

    first half of the 20th century

    internal diameter: 2.8cm, weight: 6g



    private collection, Germany

    This single ring functioned as a nose ring (similar pairs of rings were used as earrings) and was used by the Uzbek people.

    It is of high-carat gold wire with complex gold granulation work and tight gold wire spirals. It is further decorated with two green glass cushion-shaped beads and tiny baroque pearls.

    It is without loss and in fine condition with obvious age.
