Usually made of metal and worn as jewelry, the amulet traditionally contained a written prayer, blessed by a Buddhist priest. Curiously a Gao box has also been known to attract or strengthen love by placing a keepsake or love note inside and giving to a partner or potential beau.
This pendant hangs from a large collection of black wooden beads, strung together and fastened at the back with a simple hook and eye clasp. The amulet features a coral centerpiece and two red strand tassels with wooden beads.
