Details

Vintage Tibetan repoussé sterling silver capped butterscotch amber color resin bead. Average 43x18mm. Purchased in Nepal 1970s

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.
