Indian, Silver Thumb Ring.

Sorry, this Thumb Ring is no longer available, we do have others though.

Here’s a treasure, and ornate silver and richly coloured glass Indian thumb ring with two bells on it.
(Perfect for those who like their Tribal Jewellery kinetic! The bells which aren’t identical, rattle in a jingly way, against the point or spike that juts up or down the thumb, which ever way you prefer.)

The silver itself is sculpted with borders of small bosses and concentric circles surrounding the intense blue and red faceted glass inserts.

This silver has acquired a mellow patina, but would cope with a polish with a dry Silver Polishing cloth, just to bring out the highlights, occasionally.

Generally in good condition, for it’s age but showing just enough character to make it romantic.

By the way the background is a nineteenth century shawl design from Paisley in Scotland, once again you can recognize the cross referencing and copying that went on.
The similarities to the shawls of Paris and Kashmir, and the Russian Cottons exported to the Central Asian peoples are obvious.
