Vintage ring from Yemen. Inset is a glass bead, used in place of coral. Four small bells attached around the inset. Band is decorated with filigree floral appliques. US size 6. Mixed metals probably with a little silver content. Please note: glass bead is ORANGE, and not a yellow orange. A traditional and authentic look from Yemen originally used as a talisman against evil spirits. Great conversation starter!
All traditional bedouin jewelry is used as a talisman and has a protective value against the evil eye. (Almost all personal adornment does double duty as protection.) The color red (and red/orange) is especially protective and is used often in jewelry by incorporating coral, red glass, carnelian stones or other naturally red colored items.
