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 symbol for the nature of reality, or sunyata, indicating endless creativity, potency, and skillful activity. Known for it's double facets, the shape of the Dorje symbolizes the two forms of truth, relative and absolute. It is joined together by a brass center sphere known as the sphere of reality. Made in Nepal of brass with an antique finish.
