Shamballa is sanskrit “bliss” sham-ba-lla transliteration. It is buddhist jewelry.

It meaning a kind of macrame bracelet and necklace with the semi-precious stone or gemstone ball beads and the crystal pave ball beads.

If it is a real shamballa bracelet it should have these symbols and I will explain them. The philosophy is incorporated in each of the designs through ancient Buddhist and Tibetan symbols – for example our thunderbolt which is said to symbolize enlightenment, the Kartika dragon which is said to symbolize the severance of all material and worldly bonds – or the signature double thunderbolt, the Star of Shamballa, which is a reminder to each and every one of us that we are unique just like the stars in the sky. Just like a star the human being can emanate light and heat. This way, a deeper meaning connected to the main philosophy is to be found in each of the pieces.

Shamballa bracelets have become the hands-down biggest accessory trend of 2011. Hip hop and rap artists like Chris brown, Jay Z, P Diddy, Busta Rhymes, and Dr. Dre have all been spotted wearing Shamballa bracelets, and that’s not all. Female celebrities like Beyonce and the Kardashians have also been photographed wearing these Buddhist-inspired bracelets. No other accessory is so hot right now! And the great thing about Shamballa bracelets is that there are so many different styles and colours to choose from, so you can accessorize while keeping your personal tastes and preferences in mind. 

 

The word Shamballa comes from ancient Tibetan and Buddhist traditions. Also spelled Shambhala or Shambala, Shamballa was known as a mythical kingdom hidden somewhere in Inner Asia that was said to epitomize the notion of Pure Land. This was a place where the physical and geographical didn’t matter—only spiritual and visionary concepts. For that reason, Shamballa bracelets represent highly-personal, ancient symbols like karma, inner peace, tranquillity, and happiness. Many people have begun to wear them during yoga session, martial arts practice, and meditation, although most buy them as a way to express their personal spirituality—not to mention mimic their favourite celebrities.
