Description Seven crumpled hemispheres are placed in front of a second zone of nine hemispheres, which in turn are mounted on a flattened ring, all made of gold. Granules appear between the hemispheres. In back, the opening of the ring is crossed vertically and horizontally by two struts of twisted wire. Above, partially concealing the ear wire, is a bead-edged box setting filled with a glass inlay.
