Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

This head ornament is quite special. Very large, heavy and double sided with a rich number of dangles, including filigree decorated discs.

Very beautiful, Peter. My congratulations. I love the "all-over" granulation. Looking forward to seeing your other finds from Riyadh... Best wishes, Betty

Dear Thelma. Many thanks for your comment. Yes, it is a single piece, worn by a married lady. It is very rich and heavy and especially double sided, which is usually not the case. I am still in Riyadh and might visit some shops later today... I have purchased some other beauties but will need to clean them first before posting. With kind regards. Peter

Dear Peter, I am so pleased to see this. It really does look very special. Do you think it was worn as a single ornament or does it have a twin somewhere. It is gorgeous. Congratulations on finding it.
