The rings are held together by links without joints in them, and the whole was carved from a small jade pebble. A similar but more elaborate belt ornament has been excavated from the 5th-century tomb of Marquis Yi of Zeng, found at Suizhou, Hubei province. From modern-day China. Eastern Zhou period, 500-400 BCE. (The British Museum, London).
