Dzi beads are meant to promote compassion and loving kindness toward living beings. Slip it in your pocket, hang it from a pendant, or make it part of a bracelet or necklace. I carefully select all the dzi beads at Sleepy Buddha, and represent them as accurately as possible. I don't carry ancient beads, which can cost thousands of dollars, but I sometimes have a small line of 50-100 year old dzi. If you have any questions about the provenance of a bead, or its age, I'll do my best to answer your concerns.
