CBS Register: the Pendants are U.10867. The belt is U.10879/ Belt: ten strings of gold, lapis, carnelian (sketch) cyl. 28 large gold ring pendants.
-Puabi's "belt." There are 28 large gold ring pendants that are strung to the bottom of the belt. Unlike the frontlet where the pieces are part of the folded joiner, these are just free floating gold rings. The belt itself is all barrel beads, not a one even slightly biconical. There are 10 rows of beads, and the general pattern for each is 9 lapis, followed by either a carnelian or gold separated by a lapis bead, and ending with 9 lapis. There are a total of 50 gold, 60 carnelian, and 280 lapis beads.
