This is an alluring portrait of a young lady, that is done in the Orientalist style posed in almost full frontal view.

She is wearing a gold head piece that wraps around her head and that is embellished with three emeralds at the center top, with embedded in side by side gold disk and the other above in a thin gold ring.

Below that are three elongated pearls, with the center one hanging from a brown gemstone embedded in a gold ring; while on either side of her head is attached a large gold engraved disc with an embedded ruby, that has hanging from it 4 gold ball chains that are attached to large cut out gold disc.

The disc have red and green gemstones around the perimeter with a gold semi-sphere at the center and seven round pearls placed around it in a star fashion; and ganging from the bottom of the disc are nine elongated pearls attached to it by gold clasp.

To compliment the head, there is a double loop of string pearls around her neck that fit neatly withing the deep v-neck created from the crossing over of the white gown that she wearing with thick gold stripes and a large green sash around her waist.

She is looking down at the view, while holding a cup of steaming hot coffee in her right hand, over a saucer that she is holding with her left hand.
