Coral is considered auspicious and is worn in the necklace by almost all the women of Kumaon and among the Tibetans as well. Red Coral is a fossil coral meaning it's the remains of old coral and has been dyed red. The ones being traded are the traditional ones Tibetans wear traditionally. It is believed to be advantageous to one's health and protects from the danger of widowhood, as well as bringing good luck or good fortune to the house. Coral also quiets the emotions and brings peace and harmony to the surroundings.
Red is related to life force and preservation. The Buddha Amitabha is depicted with a red body in Tibetan art. The part of the body associated with this color is the tongue. Fire is the natural element complementary to the color red. In Buddhism, meditating on the color red transforms the delusion of attachment into the wisdom of discernment.
For a frame of reference a dime is about 18 millimeters. 8 millimeters is a good size for the average wrist. 6 millimeters are usually preferred by women. And 10 millimeters are for those that have an average male wrist size but like the look of bigger beads; or for those with above average wrist sizes.
If you would like a better fit for the bracelet please note wrist size or loose / tight fit preference, and we will custom make the best bracelet for you. You can do this in the note section at checkout.
