Vintage Tibet or Nepal Amber resin oval bead with coin silver  bead caps.  These beads have a wonderful glow when held to the light.  46mm x 27mm x 16mm. average size.  Purchased in Nepal 1970s.  Sold individually.

The Tibetans sometimes applied gold or silver caps to the ends of valuable ancient stone beads such as etched carnelians, Dzi and banded agates to conceal damage or reinforce fragile beads.  This style has been copied in some vintage and contemporary silver-capped beads from Nepal.

This is a beautiful hand made bead that was made 50 years ago and is much higher quality and has more character than the ones mass produced today.
