    I found this big, chunky ring a few weeks ago. I know nothing about it, other than its made from mixed metals and one large carnelean bead thats now made into the center piece of the has some tiny bells around the carnelean too.
    Could it be a turkmen piece?
    I m not sure of it, but I believe its not a modern piece. Why would people nowadays bother to make a ring around an old bead?
    But thats only my theory ;-)
    Anyways, I think its pretty. I hope you enjoy it too.

      I was wondering if it could be Beduoin, I have a bracelet with these similar bells I the Bracelet came from the Yemen.

      Hello Newtimes! I really like your ring and it´s ethnic tribal look. It makes me think of Pakistan, India ... Could it be a vintage kuchi tribal ring? Have you seen the page You might find similarities there that can help give you an idea.

      I thought you might have already but just in case you had not. I really like your ring. Is the stone agate do you think?

      Sorry, now I saw you had written carnelian :)

      The bead looks very much like those in used multi-gem necklaces from India.
