RING TELLS / Jewelry


"Ring tells..." is a ring which consists of 2 parts: the marble part inside and the silver part.The silver part,on which carved a text of Tibetan mantra, is rotatable, just like a
miniature of ZhuanJingTong,a keepsake of Tibetan Buddhism.People could wear the ring and rotate it frequently like rotating ZhuanJingTong.After a long term of touching,
the general silver part would get brighter while the scrub text part gets darker due to oxidation , So we could see the Ring tells the mantra and the muddha has manifested!Meantime,the extent of the silver's brightness could also tells users their health condition.
