Details

Vintage Tibet repousse silver capped red coral bead. Average size 20mm. These beads are hand made and vary slightly in size. These beads were purchased in Nepal in the 1970s. Bead hole size on the silver cap averages 2.5mm. 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.
