The braided hoop ends with a diamond-shaped corolla decorated with filigree and terminating in a flower. The neck is decorated with filigree motifs; underneath the corolla is an applied loop to close the hook. The decorative motif flower, which is used instead of an animal protome, is original and there are no known exact comparisons.
