I wore this to dinner in Hawai'i instead of a Hawai'ian Lei. Most guys wouldn't wear something that looks like a lady's set of pearls, but this worked well in a Hawai'ian setting. I received many nice compliments about it. It's heavyweight (3.3 Oz = 90 g), and has a beautiful sheen to the stones. I'm really happy I got this and brought it with me to the Tibetan Stupa in Pa'ia on Maui.
This is an elegant and refined mala... beautiful to wear and to hold with lovely translucent tiger eye beads, each one is different- together an organic work of art!
