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.
