Nepal: Silver and Crystal ring (1960 circa)

Ref: KPIE38

Beautiful ring of Nepalese handicraft, from the late '60s.

The central cabochon features a bright red crystal - the colour of Life - while on both sides are set three small crystals in green (sacred colour) and red.

The bezel - a wide band - and the ring itself are decorated with fine hammering.

These rings, usually for men, were often used as an adornment for hair or in ceremonial textiles: the red crystal, in particular, tells us that the wearer occupied an important status, given the scarcity of this material. ​
