This fabulous antique Tibetan gau pendant is a piece of Tibetan history and culture. Gau, or g'au, are small prayer boxes that were used when Tibetans travelled and wanted to carry Buddhist prayers and relics with them. The front of this handmade gau is crafted from sterling silver and decorated with dark red Italian coral and sky blue turquoise. The removable back is also made of sterling silver and imprinted with a double dorje symbol, and can open to store personal objects.
This striking Tibetan gau pendant will look great on a simple silver necklace!
This antique Tibetan necklace is highlighted by the wonderful dual 'Tiger Claw' pendant. The handmade sterling silver pendant is inlaid with turquoise and coral and age has brought a beautiful luster. The rest of the coral and turquoise necklace perfectly complements this central pendant.
This stunning antique necklace is a one-of-a-kind cultural masterpiece!
