A truly amazing piece! Handmade in Kathmandu by jewelry artist Karma Dolma.
This necklace is made up of strands of true turquoise and vintage coral. It features brass beads, naga shell beads, and a sterling silver hand-inlaid coral vintage focal bead.
Coral is known as the stone of passion and can be used to reconnect with nature and attract love and prosperity. Coral is also connected with bringing inner peace, strength, and understanding of purpose.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth.
The naga/conch shell represents the fame of the Buddha's teaching which spreads in all directions like the sound of the conch trumpet. It is a symbol which fearlessly proclaims the truth of the dharma.
Hangs approximately 18 inches. An amazing example of Tibetan artistry.
