On December 9, 2020 the State Committee of Information Technology and Communications of the Kyrgyz Republic puts into circulation a series of Kyrgyz Express Post postage stamps: "Joint stamp issue between Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine. Traditional Jewelry".

Jewelry has always played an important role in the cultures of various nations. Besides its aesthetic function, jewelry has also had a special meaning in the realm of the spiritual and the ethereal.

A tumar is a traditional Kyrgyz chest adornment, which had an important sacred significance. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, it also played the role of talisman.
