Description
Three bronze finger rings worn by men in Nigeria.
The smallest ring is decorated with circular engravings at the join. It may have had this decoration all over but has been worn smooth.
The second ring is slightly larger and twisted in four strands. The area near the join also has circular engravings.
The third ring is the same size as number two, and it is smooth with circular engravings both near the join and in a small area halfway around.
