The Yakut earrings

In old times it was possible to know everything about woman just looking on her earrings.

The form of Yakut earrings resembles a female figure, each trinket or bell means for decades. That is why, the earrings with a lot of bells is a prerogative of ladies in age. A little tongue in the pendant means the child, the number of small reeds is not important, it is given to understand that the woman is a Mother. Cranes symbolize happiness, and some jewelry (a pendant for example) is recommended for unmarried girls for luck in finding a husband.
