Silver Gau with Turquoise Cabochons

Calculated at Checkout

This Tibetan Gau resembles a lotus pattern, with seven striking genuine turquoise cabochons placed in a circular pattern on an ornamental silver base. Historically, turquoise was considered a stone of enormous value for many civilizations, from the ancient Egyptians and Incas to the Chinese and Native Americans. Today, it is known for its protective and healing properties. Tibetans prize turquoise highly and often wear it on or close to their skin. 

Traditionally, a Gau holds pictures or holy relics. This Gau can be opened by a small clasp at its base. The Gau can be worn as an amulet or a pendant. 

The piece is 1.2" x 1.5"
