Tibetans use jewelry as a means to keep them close to deities. Tibetan silver jewelry has a rustic, almost unfinished look to it. Tibetan silver pieces are individually made in a process that usually involves hammering and chiseling. No one will ever confuse it as having been machine mass produced, and herein lies its simple beauty.
The Tibetan Dorje represents firmness and power of spirit. A powerful protective talisman and destroyer of ignorance, the dorje is the symbol of the Compassionate Buddha.
