Unserious Contents or Definition

If you wear ornaments in dreams, you will have a flattering honor conferred upon you. If you receive them, you will be fortunate in undertakings. Giving them away, denotes recklessness and lavish extravagance. Losing an ornament, brings the loss either of a lover, or a good situation.
