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.
