The item is a women’s rosary, which is a type of Buddhist prayer beads used for meditation and chanting. The rosary is made of crystal beads and silk tassels, which are both high-quality materials. The crystal beads are believed to have purification and protection properties, and they have a clear and beautiful transparency. The silk tassels are made of pure silk, and they have a twisted end that prevents them from fraying. The tassel silk fringe is dyed in two colors: coral and white, which create a stylish contrast with the crystal beads.
The rosary is a product of Kyoto, which is the historical and cultural center of Japan. Kyoto is known for its traditional crafts and arts, and the rosary is made by skilled craftsmen who follow the ancient methods of making rosaries. The rosary is also labeled as a “Kyoto rosary”, which means it meets the high standards of quality and authenticity set by the Kyoto Rosary Manufacturing Association.
The rosary comes with a special wooden box that is made of paulownia, which is a type of wood that has insect-repellent and moisture-proof effects. The box is ideal for storing and preserving the rosary. The box also has the logo of the Kyoto Rosary Manufacturing Association on it, which certifies the rosary as a genuine Kyoto rosary.
The rosary can be used by all sects of Buddhism, as it does not have any specific symbols or designs that belong to a particular school or tradition. The rosary is a type of omamori, which are Japanese amulets that are sold at Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples for various purposes. Omamori are usually meant to bring good luck, health, safety, or success to the wearer or owner.
