These adornments were far too large for actual wear - instead they were used more for ceremonial purposes. A bride-to-be would receive this from her fiancé one year before the marriage. The ring is illustrated with a gold filigree with large central bosses and small border bosses in blue and white. Its blue enamel roof is engraved with the Hebrew letter for 'Good Luck.'
