This exquisite gold rudraksha mālā is created from the very smallest and finest rudraksha beads, about 6-6.5mm in diameter. The smaller the rudraksha bead, the more valuable it is because of its rarity.
The 54 fine beads, plus one central bead, are double-capped in 18-karat gold and strung on an 18-karat gold chain. This original rudraksha mālā in gold is approximately 28 inches long.
The beads in a rudraksha mālā vary depending on the size of the beads. Traditionally, for sacred jewellery, 54 beads are strung into a mālā, with an extra ‘guru’ bead to indicate the beginning or end of a round of repetition.
