Tibetan jewelry and art is very symbolic and part of everyday life and a reflection of their religious beliefs. Reciting Om Mani Padme Hung is common in Tibet. This mantra is sometimes inscribed on Tibetan jewelry. Tibetan jewelry is quite beautiful, with vibrant colors, but stylish and simplistic. The colors most used are bright reds and light blues but you will also find green and yellow. Tibetans actually value their jewelry based on its color, size and symbolism.
After the Chinese take over of Tibet, most of the jewelry makers today can be found in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Many jewelry makers have been here for many years and the business remains within the family, the skills passed down through the generations. The Tibetans have been skilled silversmiths for centuries.
Many of the Tibetan jewelry are made of the highest-quality silver with antique turquoise, coral and amber often used. Most of the semi-precious gems are found in the Himalayas.
The silver used in Tibetan jewelry is usually 92.5% silver and some Tibetan silver jewelry has a rustic, unfinished look to it. Hand made using hammer and chisel; it is unique in its charm. We also carry custom made resin and white metal jewelry. We have a large collection of custom jewelry such as necklaces, rings, ear rings, pendants, bracelets, silver bangles, etc.
