Description These elements once formed different pieces of jewelry, including possibly a belt, hair adornments, a pendant, earrings, and other ornaments meant to be sewn onto clothing or headdresses. They originally were set with gems and inlaid with colored enamel. Together, they constitute one of the most important groups of jewelry known from al-Andalus, or Muslim Spain.
