The subject of this research is the belts to the women’s clothes of the late XVIII – the early XIX centuries. The authors conduct an analysis on designing the women’s national belt of this period from the fund of the National Historical Museum of Nalchik. Women’s clothes is directly associated with the ornamental art, particularly with jewelry accessories. Women’s belts are being studied by several different aspects: by shape, size, varieties of ornaments, designing techniques, etc. The meaning and role of belt in the life of Cherkess women is being examined. The method of this research is the study of reconstruction, designing technique and varieties of the women’s national belt, the analogue of which became the belt from the fund of the National Historical Museum of the Kabardino-Balkar Republic. The authors conclude that the silver belt were able to afford only the women from wealthy families; young ladies wore narrow belts, while the wide ones were more suitable for the status of older women. With the transformation of women’s clothes, takes place the design modification of the belt. It lost its functionality; the contemporary seamstresses simplified the shape of the belt. The world currently undergoes the processes of globalization, as well as experiences changes in the design of the ancient wares.
