Disks for embellishing hair plaits were jewellery items characteristic of women’s attire. When plaiting their hair, a good number of women and girls included in the strands silk ribbons or strips of leather. These ribbons and leather strips featured mountings that were round or rhombus shaped; at the end of each ribbon or strip was a disk, usually worn at chest level. Coming to light mostly in pairs, these are likewise pieces that have been cast or else stamped out from sheet metal; some are openwork. They mostly depict plant motifs, the tree of life, or palmettes; more rarely, mythical animals feature. With the exception of those in a leader’s burial discovered in the Zemplén region, hair-plait disks have always been found as parts of women’s attire. These disks belong among the archaic elements of Hungarian attire that the Hungarians brought with them from the east.
