A large Ghau box from Nepal, worn usually by a man is the focal point of this necklace. It has loads of filigree work and is set with turquoise and corals at each corner and a turquoise teardrop at the centre. The ghau is a box meant for carrying small reliquaries and prayers. It is carried on a necklace of faux beeswax amber and little red seeds, with a second strand of blue howlite heishi beads. The necklace is choker length at 18" to drape closely around the neck and is closed with a moss agate box clasp.
Wear this one in the open neck of a simple white shirt or with a close neck outfit and sit back and wait for the attention and compliments as a flamboyant woman of impeccable taste.

Kalachakra is a Sanskrit word made up of two terms; kala meaning “time” and chakra meaning “wheel”, literally translated into English as “Wheel of Time”. It is one of many tantric teachings and esoteric practices in Tibetan Buddhism. The tradition combines myth and history, whereby actual historical events become an allegory for the spiritual drama within a person, drawing symbolic / allegorical lessons for inner transformation towards realizing Nirvana. The most important texts of this tradition include the Kalachakra Tantra and the Vimalaprabha. The traditions roots are in India, but its most active history and presence has been in the monasteries of Tibet, and it is believed that the Kalachakra was taught by the Buddha himself.
The necklace is 21" long and has three strands of coral spiky beads flanking the pendant, which end in blue howlite pumpkin beads, yak bone beads from Tibet, little gold plated glass beads and a toggle clasp. However, to my mind, the pendant is the showpiece and is particularly beautiful. The box mechanism is intact and can be used to carry pills, prayers or other charms - I would just wear it because of its extreme beauty.
21" long, this necklace has the most beautiful Ghau box pendant, inlaid and studded with coral and turquoise. The necklace has a couple of chunks of coral, turquoise blue dyed howlite and faux Raku Buddha mala beads, embellished with gold foil. The Buddha beads are made of polymer clay and are not as heavy as they look, in spite of being so chunky.
This necklace screams sophistication, with the bright pendant and dull Buddha beads. An ornamental box clasp finishes the necklace in style. Tribal necklaces are becoming extremely modish and trendy and you might want to wear this one with a T shirt, or even a simple open necked shirt - whichever way you wear it, you will look fantastic.
