Tatarstan ~ Kazan | Cuff bracelet; silver toned metal; engraved

Ngawa, Amdo, Tibet | Woman from Ngawa dressed in her family treasures of coral, gold, silver and other jewelry. This lady probably wears 10 to 15kg of coral necklaces alone (the rest of her jewelry worn on her back and below the waist might be the same again!), so must get very tired after hours of wearing all this! That's why dressing up like this happens only once a year at most. Both the silver belt with huge inlaid coral, and the headdress are style special to Ngawa. Photographer: ?
