Antique Uzbek coral and black bead nose ring/pendant
A classic tribal nose ring from the Karakalpakstan region of Uzbekistan. Four coral and two black beads in conjunction with rustic silver beads give this nose ring a rather clean, muted profile. Nothing about it shouts 'ethnic'. But neither is it something that will quietly blend in. A perfect pop of intrigue to any outfit, we think.
Re-purposed as a pendant and comes ready to wear strung on a thin red waxed cotton cord.
Composition: Sterling Silver.
Stamped: No visible markings.
Measurements: 3.5 cm long and 3.8 cm at the widest.
Country of origin: Uzbekistan
Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than the actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
