Northern regions of Tajikistan are not as abundant in ancient gold finds. The earliest ones date back to I century BC – I century AD. Adornments of the Shirin settlement and Kurkat burial sites were found later, in IV-VI centuries. Old traditions are reflected in gold jewelry crafted by modern masters. The jewelry collection of the ethnographical museum mentioned above includes several pairs of gold earrings (as well as nose rings ) that serve as perfect examples of artistic and ethnographical features, fashion, taste and rituals of Tajikistan in XIX-early XX centuries. Even in modern world earrings remain the most popular type of adornments among women and children.

An exercise I do all the time anyway and found out it's actually beneficial to the toes is to "grip" the floor with the pads of your toes without bending them. This straightens toes without straining them too much, and is an exercise I automatically do throughout the day anyhow since my toes will get so stiff and painful they need the stretch often. I can do it in shoes if they are loose enough. It's really very easy. You simply press the pads of your toes into the floor as hard as you can. It's like getting a good morning stretch. Rubbing against shoe sides is not a healthy indication. Changing the shoes to the appropriate ones is not only the easiest option but economically the best also, for the treatment of mallet toe Doctors also advice use of inserts and stress relieving pads inside the shoes. Therefore it is always made to treat the problem by all methods other than surgery. The last resort is of course surgery. It is an irony that a major toe affliction like mallet toe is totally avoidable and is caused only by sheer negligence on the part of the person concerned to do things correctly matters relating to the foot.

You never know when you may inadvertently puncture your feet on something sharp, no matter how careful you are.
