As an important part of Tibetan Buddhism culture, Tibet beads are prevalent among the jewelry and antiques markets.

The most famous kind of Tibet beads is Dzi bead, with its authentic handicraft lost dated back to Tang Dynasty, making the precious antiques more valuable in the current market.

The musical instruments used in the Tibetan Buddhism, such as prayer beads and Buddha beads, are made of various kinds of materials including sclerotin, colored glaze and papal tree seed, thus their prices are different. However, these Tibet beads all possess outstanding beauty.

The special materials, including refined craftwork and rich cultural deposits of Tibetan Buddhism bring these beautiful Tibet beads with mystery and decency.
