Why this is a
Masterpiece

These ribbons are believed to have been used for a wedding ceremony. By using semi-precious gem stones this piece became a bright and colourful decoration. It also functioned as a symbolic powerful guardian against evil spirits that could harm the bride in future. It is a masterpiece, representative of a wedding ceremony in the late Chosun Dynasty.

History of the Object
Chignon ribbons were worn by a bride. They were hung from the chignon down the back over the outer coat. These are more elaborate and wider than other chignon ribbons because they were meant to be used by a bride. They are decorated with auspicious letters meaning longevity, good fortune and prosperity.
