women with gold teeth (vietnam)

Photos of Vietnam tribe women with gold teeth.­

The healthy teeth covered with gold indicate that the woman is married.­ It's the equivalent of a wedding ring.­

It's convenient: as soon as the woman or teenage girl smiles, you know if she is single or not!

Girls from ethnic minorities (i.­e.­ tribes) marry at about 14 or 15 years of age.­
