Rare Tibetan Dzi + Red Coral Necklace

Rare Tibetan Dzi + Red Coral Necklace



Knowledge of ancient dzi Tibetan agate beads is derived from oral traditions and still remains an ancient mystery. There are so many variations of their creation story. The first story tells about Guru Padmasambhawa who once cast a tantric curse on some stones which transformed into Dzi beads and were thrown into different places all over Tibet. The second tale relates the Dzi beads' origin of insects. Many insects roamed around the riverbanks of Tibet and when people would run into these insects, a negative aura would consume them and transform them into Dzi Beads. The third legend claims that the Dzi beads were treasures of the sea brought up by serpents. Many tend to believe this because Dzi beads are part of the agate family. Many agate pieces have been created through rock formations found nearby or in rivers all over the world.


They are regarded as intensely powerful protective amulets - this mysterious agate is steeped in history, with many belief systems turning to the powers and energies of the stone. Dzi and were considered to counteract the evil eye, protect from harmful energy and will always be one of the most interesting, mysterious and highly regarded amulet stones. 


This piece is strung with mother of pearl, gold zamak + red bamboo coral and a 18k gold filled clasp with 2 inch extender. 


    All my pieces are created by hand and made to order. I value and use high quality materials to extend the life of each piece so they are non-tarnish. Earring hooks are 18k gold stainless steel. Clasps, chains, beads, hoops, jump rings and other hardware are 18k gold filled, pewter, 24k gold zamak (a hypoallergenic, exceptionally solid, firm, non-tarnishing, recyclable, long lasting metal) , 925 sterling silver or stainless steel depending on the piece and material availability. Pearls, shells and gemstones and other beads are natural, genuine, and from the Earth and will vary and size, pattern and shade.


    Each adornment has been smoke cleansed with asta sughanda infused with dragon's blood resin in order to release and drive away possible harmful energies. Take off when in contact with water, avoid pulling wire, and clean with a dry cloth and store in cotton cloth bag (both free with purchase) when not in use to preserve integrity. I offer free adjustments and repairs - see the info section of the website.
