The verme interested in the topic, it gets me a huge book written in Burmese explaining data about its origins, as this legend that; Account that a woman of extraordinary beauty dragon was owned by the wind and as result of that surprising union spread land their descendants who were called Kayan the symbolism of their necks in honor to the dragon also explains the curious relationship they have with different to me South African tribes as the ndebele of Zimbabwe in which women and men also used rings around their necks as I see in a photograph that shows me a man of color with golden rings by its high neck. My mind goes blank when friendly Lady me loose in the air the question does can there be that peculiar tradition, in two very opposite areas and away from each other? One is stone when he finds out that you even they themselves know with certainty about the origins of their traditions. By what I explained, another of the theories is based on that previously when they worked in the field there were constant attacks from Tigers that fixed them neck, bursting them to the jugular, it has the intention of the rings was of simple protection against the attacks of the fierce animal. There are other more realistic assumptions, as representing the fact to associate greater number of rings with a higher social rank or the simple canon of beauty as body adornment. One last idea less convincing is that the rings would serve to ensuring marital fidelity: in case of adultery, the rings would be removed, so the guilty would be forced to spend the rest of his life lying or holding on the neck with his hands. We will never know the true origin of such mysterious event, but the custom is now keeping the tradition only in girls born in Wednesday’s full moon, at the rate of a ring position each season since they met 5 years of age.
