The word Shamballa comes from ancient Buddhism. In both Tibetan and Indian Buddhism, Shambhala (also spelt Shambala or Shamballa) is a mythical kingdom hidden somewhere in Inner Asia and is supposed to symbolise purity. It is mentioned in various ancient scripts and concerns high spiritual ideals.
Over the centuries, Shambhala jewellery has become associated with a so-called Pure Land, a fabulous and peaceful kingdom whose reality is visionary or spiritual rather than purely physical or geographical. It was in this form that the Shambhala story reached the West, where it has influenced non-Buddhist as well as Buddhist spiritual seekers. Consequently, Shamballa jewellery is believed to impart purity, tranquility and personal happiness onto the person wearing it and for this reason they have also become know as bracelets for luck. For example, our Shamballa bracelets made of Amethyst (the so-called dream stone of the mind) have a little word charm attached saying Dream and makes an ideal gift for someone with dreams of a different life perhaps, as well as to promote calmness and intellect. Our Shamballa camino bracelet – Confucius, is made of Jade because this is reputed to offer protection from negative energy and to give strength and inner peace. The little concha shell of Spain’s Camino de Santiago attached to this bracelet, is also siad to be a symbol of protection.
So, when Shamballa bracelets are coupled with a particular gemstone (that has its own individual significance), the bracelet can be a powerful piece of ‘ Jewellery with Meaning ‘ and for this reason, Shamballa bracelets make particularly meaningful bracelets. They are also bracelets for luck. For example, our shamballa bracelet ~ Calma, is made of Aventurine, believed to bring the wearer increased luck. It is made of lustrous sea green-coloured Aventurine set in macramé knotted cord and is said to permit the wearer to de-stress from life’s problems and find inner peace. Or, our specially-commissioned Shambhalla bracelet ~ Believe, is handmade of Carnelian and is a a perfect gift to encourage inner strength.
Our shambala bracelet – Faith, has beads of Tiger’s Eye and is said to be an ideal gift to promote vision and clarity; Or our Indian Agate shambala bracelet is meant to promote strength and even courage 🙂 So, to lots of people, Shamballa jewellery has strong spiritual meaning, and it is thought to give people special feelings of peace, happiness and calm, coupled with the individual qualities of the particular gemstone from which it is made.
Originally these meaningful bracelets were made from waxed linen string with basic beads; but nowadays, they can also feature a more exotic range of gemstones (even precious diamonds!).
