This is a fully adjustable sterling silver spinning 'dorje' (in Tibetan) or 'vajra' (in Sanskrit) ring, hand-crafted in the Patan (Lalitpur) district of Kathmandu. The tapered ring bands allow the ring to be adjusted to fit almost any size finger (please see the Size Information below). The ingenious design allows the dorje to spin freely with a satisfying 'whirr', when spun with the flick of a finger, or to roll slowly when turned gently. If you're anything like us, you'll find yourself rolling and spinning your dorje ring all through your day.
The 18mm (0.7") long dorje is inlaid with alternating Tibetan turquoise and coral gemstones and is set into the 92.5% sterling silver body of the ring, flanked by 7mm x 8mm (0.27"x0.3") coral gemstones and decorative silver braiding.
In the Hindu scriptures, the vajra is the mighty thunderbolt weapon of Indra, god of rain and thunder. In Tibetan Buddhism the vajra or dorje symbolises both the thunderbolt of Enlightenment and the indestructibility of diamond - signifying spiritual strength and resilience.
The Vedas describe Indra's vajra as an open-pronged weapon and, according to Buddhist legend, the Buddha took the vajra from Indra and closed it's prongs together, turning the once fearful weapon into a sceptre symbolising spiritual power, balance and harmony.

Vintage Sizing and Measurements
Vintage sizing and modern sizing can be very different. Because of this, we provide detailed measurements of all vintage clothing to help you determine whether or not a garment will fit correctly.

A good way to determine fit:
* Find a similar item in your wardrobe.
* Measure it according to our measurement guidelines.
* Compare your measurements to those of the vintage item you are interested in.
* You're done. If it's a good fit, make it yours!
