Jewelry plays an important role in the culture of Nepal and Tibet. Jewelry is a part of dress, a symbol of spirituality, and a part of everyday life. This area of the world is predominantly Buddhist. The wearing of jewelry is a way to draw close to the gods. Jewelry also has the properties of an amulet, bringing protection from evil spirits to the wearer.

 

Most Nepalese jewelry is made of either copper or silver, though 24K gold is also used. The amount of metal used to create the jewelry makes each piece quite heavy. A Nepalese woman wearing her jewelry proudly can be weighed down by jewelry measured in pounds.

The most common stones used in Nepalese jewelry making are Turquoise and Coral. The very color of these stones is thick with symbolism. Turquoise, for example, symbolizes the sky and the sea and because the sky is endless the turquoise stone represents infinity, or the limitless ascension of the mind.

Though Turquoise and Coral are the most common stones used in Nepalese jewelry making, other stones are used as well. You are likely to find jewelry made with precious stones such are rubies and sapphires as well as jewelry made from semi precious stones such as amethyst, amber, jade, agate, garnet, lapis luzuli, carnelian and copal. Yak bone is also a popular material for making jewelry.

Many piece of Nepalese jewelry are actually representations of Sanskrit words. These words carry particular meaning for the wearer of the jewelry. The symbol for Om is often incorporated into jewelry. Om is the sound the universe makes as the planets travel through space. This sound has relaxing and healing properties. Wearing this symbol reminds the wearer of the peace that can be found by keeping harmony with Om.
