Lapis Lazuli Tibetan Gau Pendant

This exquisite gold wash pendant has a large natural lapis lazuli set in the centre surrounded by synthetic corals and more lapis lazuli. The round shape is considered extremely sacred and said to represent the teachings of Buddha in their entirety. Gau pendants have a secret compartment with a removable back. This can be opened and traditionally was used to keep a written prayer. It can now be used to keep anything from kumkum to a loved one’s photo.

Tibetan jewellery has an emphasis on elaborate and intricate designs. This gorgeous pendant has a dominant Nepalese influence on it: many of the craftsmen living in Nepal where it was made are descendants of refugees who fled from Tibet when the Chinese invaded in the 1950s. The pendant has been handcrafted by these artisans using various gemstones which not only add to its vibrant beauty but also have energetic qualities.

The pendant is provided with a complimentary leather thread.
