An exhibition of women’s adornments in Yakutsk, Russia, displays breast adornment, earrings, hair chains, belts, as well as jokduri, a traditional Korean coronet.

An exclusive exhibit is a silver-covered Armenian women’s belt from the 19th century, which was passed down to girls through the female line. The original owner of the belt was Javair Melikyan, who gave it to her niece, Haytsemnik Nikolyan. Then the belt was inherited by her granddaughter, Vanuhi Grigoryan.

The exhibition will be open until March 29.
