Shamballa jewelry is made from Tibetan Buddhist-inspired beads worn by all the big hip hop artists. They bring a feeling of well being similar to the effect hip hop music has on the soul. Named after a kingdom in ancient Tibet where texts say it is also located in the heart of all living beings.
The jewelry is crafted from semi precious beads strung on cord, and can cost over thirty-thousand dollars US for a single bracelet. This would buy an exclusive design with diamonds and stone beads set in 18-carat gold. Mads Kornerup was the first to sell expensive shamballa jewelry in Paris in 1994. Now this beaded jewelry is sold from New York to Russia, to top London stores like Harrods and Tresor Paris.
King Ice and P Diddy are among many artists on music videos sporting these Buddhist disco ball beads. King Ices bracelets are on nylon string with a cord toggle, and are made from plastic and cubic zirconia or hematite diamonds. He raps with shamballa bead necklaces too.
However, shamballa beads are more than Buddhist inspired jewelry. Individual meanings can be expressed by their style, color and shape. And not only hip hop artists wear them for their own beliefs, other celebrities like basketball stars, Michael Jordan and Lamar Odom, and ladies like Demi Moore and Beyonce also dance with the bracelets.

Express your individuality and spiritual needs by designing your own unique shamballa bracelet and matching necklace. Create a mystical effect using skull and Buddhist beads with sparkling crystal beads to add bling.
