These two sets of earings are my favorite, especially the last pair. Jetsun is absolutely stunning! She has a natural grace and poise about her.

I love the clear crystal earings in the last photo.

PeDe, you missed the big emerald earings she wore when she met Japanese empress.  Wink

here is a close-up, not very 'clean', but the different stones are recognisable. Looks like Sapphire, Jade, and Amethyst to me (?)

Jewelry

Traditional Bhutanese jewelry is usually silver and gold jewelry with intricate motifs. They include heavy bracelets, komas or fasteners for the traditional women’s dress, the kira, loop ear rings set with turquoise, and necklaces of the most valued stones in the Himalayan region – antique turquoise, coral beads and the zhi stone.
 
The zhi stone is a highly prized stone in Bhutan and among Himalayan Buddhists who believe in its protective powers. The stone is distinguished by its black and white spiral designs called “eyes”. The zhi is believed to be an agate which were made into the zhi bead. There are now many replicas of the ancient zhi stone available in the market.
 
The best place to see Bhutanese jewelry is during a local festival where women turn up in their finery and jewelry. Some of them are draped with the traditional necklaces of coral, the size of small stones.

In Tibet and the Himalayan regions the word dZi (say zee) is the generic name for a large number of ancient agate (sometimes carnelian) stone beads that are natural, colour enhanced and decorated. It is not a name reserved only for eye beads. A dZi bead is therefore any ancient agate bead (both decorated and undecorated) that has been found within a Tibetan or Himalayan context. A bead can only be considered ancient if it is more than 1000 years old. It is also important to recognise that not all ancient dZi are from the same period. Many dZi beads are clearly of a different quality and type of manufacture, however, we must remember that Tibetans do not believe 'pure' dZi are created by human hands. Since there are many different varieties of dZi, it means that some are more desirable  than others.  If an ancient agate bead has been sourced in the Middle East, it would not necessarily be appropriate to call it a dZi bead. If an ancient agate bead was sourced within the Tibetan/Himalayan regions, then it would be known and recognised as a dZi bead.

Some believe it is only the dZi with eyes that should be classed as genuine dZi. These beads are therefore referred to as 'pure' dZi and are easily distinguished from other dZi. Even though eye beads are the most sought after, Tibetan and Himalayan people value all the different types of dZi on their individual merits. For example, an exceptional Chong dZi can be much more desirable than a mediocre dZi bead with eyes. Also, some pure dZi may be comparable in quality to eye beads but display other types of decoration -- like a lotus or vase for example.
