I had never seen Tibetan jewelry before I wrote this post, but I find their jewelry to be so beautiful, rich with history and colors. In Tibet jewelry is and/or was used as: an amulet, to show your status in society, healing properties (like balance) and spirituality. It is used by both men and women. They use a lot of metal like gold, silver and copper; they also use a lot of stones like turquoise, coral, amethyst and amber. What is so special to me about their jewelry is that every detail has a specific symbolism, for example using turquoise symbolizes infinity therefore it represents the sea or sky.
I want every single piece of jewelry that I see in these pictures… simply breathtaking. Visit my blog board on my Pinterest to check out more images on Tibetan jewelry, they are truly fascinating.
Merry Christmas! This year for Christmas I got a lot of beautiful gifts. I guess everyone knows I love jewelry and I was lucky enough to receive some beautiful pieces from my loved ones.
My two favorite vintage Bulgari collections are the Serpenti and the Ancient Coin pieces. Here are a few images that I got via FD Gallery.
