Vintage 18K gold and rudraksha beads chain necklace mala. Measures 36 inches. They are strung on an 18kt yellow gold (tested, not marked). There are 107 beads that measure approximately 5mm. There is no clasp. I have read that these should have one 108 beads plus one bead so I don’t know why these have 107 beads. Weight 25.4 grams. These were found in a safe deposit box with other Asian jewelry.Rudraksha seeds grow inside of what look like blueberries on trees South East Asia. In Buddhism and Hinduism, the beads are believed to provide inner calm, peace, and free one from negative thought. The beads get darker over time as they absorb your oils and energy. This is thought to strengthen the rudraksha.
