Beautiful example of a South Indian Thali Bottu amulet, made of 22K gold and a ruby in the center. Domed design and perfect sized bale. These kind of amulets are worn by the bride as a sign of love and respect and are the equivalent to a wedding ring. The color of the gold is far more golden than the pics show. Measurements are: Total length: 1" (2.6cm) Width: 0.8" (2cm) Bale opening: 4.4mm Weight: 4gr.
