Traditionally, Tibetans use the prayer box as a portable shrine where prayers and sacred relics are kept, thus, having their prayers close to their heart. More recently, and outside of Tibet, "prayer box" pendants are often worn as jewelry or personal adornment. A prayer can be placed in the box or prayers can be said over the box when needed. I do this because I feel like my prayers are always changing.

This is a wonderful, one-of-a-kind necklace. The lapis stone pendant is a rich color blue with gold flexes within it. Along the sides of the pendant is a dark red coral stone. The pendant can be taken off, if you'd like to wear the brass necklace alone. Or, you can put this pendant on another necklace, such as pearls.
