"This flat-topped circular ring executed in three colored enamels is characteristic of jewelry produced in Multan, Pakistan. Similar rings are also worn by the Pashtun tribe of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Comparable rings fitted with mirrors instead of carnelians were worn by brides to glance at the groom during wedding ceremonies."
