Eternal Tibetan jewelry

In Tibet, most of the people are Buddhist believers who love peace and have a simple life style. Their easy-going character is also embodied in Tibetan jewelry, which keeps the forms of the original material. Each pattern or color of the jewelry carries a special meaning, such as double fish standing for love, ritual vessels for safey, the Six-Syllable Prayer for happiness, etc.  

As the pride of Tibetan people, Tibetan jewelry is both primitive and splendid. Now many modern and fashionable elements are integrated into the design of Tibet jewelry as well.

Tibetan families always pass down precious jewelry from their ancestors, which is also an inheritance of the family's culture.
