Why this is a
Masterpiece

This matchmaker's ring was made by the bride's mother as a gift to the intermediary. The ring is equipped with a double hoop on the back, which symbolizes the union of the two families and the eternal love between the bride and the groom. Its enormous size serves to remind everyone of the wealth and prestige of the bride's family.

History of the Object
Turkmen rings were widely varied. The ring itself usually consists of filigree work covered with all kinds of decorative pieces. Sometimes these decorations were partially gilded and a Cornelian or a glass bead was added.
