Notes
On each side is a multi-layered flower buckle, connected with a linked chain. Each buckle has a gold coloured flower base with silver petal outlines placed over top. Inside each petal is a series of coiled curlicues; the left buckle has an additional smaller layer of petal outlines, topped with a silver knob; the right side has 3 additional petal-outline layers, topped with a silver knob. The 2 buckles are connected by a 14 link chain. Each link is the same: A circular centre with decorative rings and balls at the top and bottom. In the middle of the circle is a flower with 6 petals and a silver centre. Each chain-link is connected together with 3 circular links, incised with small lines, at the top, centre and bottom. The backside of the chain-links are smooth metal. The buckles have fastenings soldered on: the left side has 2 eyes; the right side has a round metal peg. Both buckles have metal strips that come from the front and fold onto the back, to attach the front detailings.
