I put a ring in your nose, and earrings in your ears, and a beautiful crown on your head. Bible see other translations

“ring in your nose.” It was the custom in biblical times for women to wear nose rings rather than earrings because the women not only had long hair, but they often wore head coverings, and those things covered any earrings such that they could not be seen. So, women customarily wore nose rings for personal decoration (Gen. 24:47; Isa. 3:21; cp. Prov. 11:22).
