Unique & exquisite

Tibetans have actually been skilled goldsmiths and silversmiths for centuries, with documents uncovered in China from the 7th century praising their skills.

Mr Vu, Director of The Silk Road and the Saigon-based Migola Travel, a travel company specialising in adventure tours around the globe, said that: ‘I carefully collect authentic products and materials while on overseas trips. As an experienced tour guide I know where the best craftsmen make handicrafts.’ The shop also offers Buddha statues, Thankar paintings, leather bags, pendants, and jewellery made from seeds, stone, jade, wood, crystal and silver.

There are a variety of exquisite bracelets and necklaces designed by The Silk Road available. The beads are an assortment of gemstones, semi-gemstones, seeds, wood, silver, and yak bone. Each bead has a special significance and are believed to bring prosperity, health, peace and fortune to those who own them. They are created in line with the five elements, a feng shui principle, including metal, wood, water, fire and earth. These feng shui elements interact between themselves in a certain way to bring more harmony to life.

Prices range from VND400,000. Open from 8.30am to 7pm.
