Tibetan jewelry is made from gemstones and it can be made from sterling silver, plated silver, copper, or brass. Many bracelets, made from a combination of silver, copper, and brass, are popular because of their healing properties. Many gemstones also have healing properties like turquoise, which helps with health issues, and tiger eye, which helps with depression. Some of our pieces are plain or only have gemstones, and other jewelry items have Buddhist symbols. Popular symbols include the eight auspicious signs or one of the signs such as the eternity knot or the lotus flower. We also have mantras on many jewelry items. The most common mantra is 'om mani padme hum', also written, 'om mani padme hung', which means 'hail to the jewel in the lotus'.
