A pair of shamshiks (also called shemsha, shemsa, shamsié), fixed on the shoulders of a garment and hanging on both sides, was one of the most widespread ornaments in Western Armenia.
Worn on the chest, these images of srti kakav (heart partridge) symbolize the partridge bird with a stylized round head and almond-shaped body. Patridges had a special role and significance in folk rites, and were a significant element of wedding rituals.
The partridges joined each other by rings, and by discs below.
