Matchmaker’s Finger Ring – Kudagi Zhuzik. XIX c.

Consists of tuft and caste oval. Smooth shank, smoothly tapers from the base to the middle.

The caste (8.9 x 7.9 x 1.2 cm) is soldered from 2 thin plates and a side band of 1.2. The interior space is filled with paste. The front side is decorated with four teardrop-shaped and round inserts of glass simulating carnelian. The cells are 1.2 cm high, soldered to the plate; their upper edges are crimped around the inserts and decorated with a stamped twisted, tuberculate and smooth filigree. The inserts are covered with round rosettes of grains in the form of triangles. The space between the inserts is decorated with a convex overlay of grains in the form of "cord", "rosettes", "bows", "triangles". On the rim of the teardrop-shaped inserts and the "cord" is a strip of grains. From two ends of the "cord" there isa handful of grains. The upper and lower parts of the scutellum are filled with patterns of granular triangles with a grain on top and granular broken lines. The edges of the flap are edged with a frame of stamped strips of twisted and smooth scans and false grains. The side band is decorated with false-triangular triangles.

Signet of Matchmaker. XIX c.

The matchmaker's ring consists of two parallel holes for the fingers and the main part. On the front part of the ring, on two sides, are forged nests, inlaid with red paste. Located in the middle of the jumper separating the nests, is designed to protect from the evil eye. The edges of the finger ring frame the heart-shaped patterns in the technique of granules. In general, the patterns on the ring remind shanyrak (yurt’s roof), which symbolizes home.

Such rings were given by the bride‘s mother to the groom's mother as a sign of uniting two families and in the hope of a kind attitude towards her daughter. Massive rings of matchmakers (kudahizhizik), designed for two fingers, symbolized the unity of the two beginnings, two families.
