It was refashioned into a bowl by adding the bottom plate around 1960. Egyptian silver is normally 90% pure, and this does have a hallmark on the bottom, which is what was used for dating it. The bottom plate is decorated in a traditional Mamluk inspired foliate design...

Most harem rings are decidedly in the "fine jewelry" category -- made of high-carat gold and set with gemstones -- so it's quite unusual to find an affordable version. We got lucky and found two of them lately: a seven-ring stack of textured sterling bands and this beauty!

Here, diamond rhinestones not only ornament each of five bands joined at the back, but also fit together to form a lovely flower. The metal is silver in color, unmarked, and the faceted rhinestones are real dazzlers...
