Vintage Shahid Gold Leaf over Silver Omani Ring
This is a classic Omani silver ring called shahid ring worn by Omani women on their index finger. It is from the second half of the twentieth century.
Omani women had a set of 10 rings, one for each finger. Each finger had a specialized shaped ring for that finger. Like most Omani jewelry, this ring is made of high grade silver but this one is also covered with a sheet of gold that has embossed patterns. The ring is light and a little crude, but quite nice on.
