- First appearing in India sometime between 2000 and 1000 B.C., Dzi - pronounded Zee and traditionally "dZi" or "gZi"- are believed to have made their way to Tibet from Persia as "spoils" by raiding Tibetan soldiers.
- In Tibet, the ancient Dzi were thought to be petrified insects and were presented as gifts to bring health and good fortune, as well as protection, to Tibetans with good karma.
- Little is known of the original methods of crafting the authentic, and extremely rare, Dzi.
- The glossy agates in our earrings are "mock Dzi," etched to replicate the look of the ages old beads.
- The large mismatched centerpieces in these earrings closely resemble true Dzi, shown below.
