Question: I have seen dzi beads in feng shui bracelets and necklaces and was told that dzi beads are very good feng shui to wear. How do I know which Dzi bead jewelry is good for me? Do I have to wear the beads as jewelry or can I just display them in my home?

The Dzi beads are considered to be very auspicious, this is true. And, because they are beads, of course the easiest way to enjoy the Dzi beads is to use them in jewelry!

Do you have to have the dzi beads in jewelry, though? No, you do not. You could also just display several beads in an area of your home that can benefit from the protective and a bit magical energy of the Dzi beads.

The word "Dzi" translated from Tibetan means "shine, brightness, clearness, and splendour"; and the Chinese interpretation of "Dzi" is "heaven's pearls" (Wikipedia). Quite powerful for a small bead, isn't it?

Genuine Dzi beads, also called Tibetan beads, are hard to find, which makes them very expensive. The origin of Dzi beads is somehow covered in mist, but most probably they were made by ancient people from agate by carving specific markings on the stone. You can find all sorts of designs on Dzi beads, from circles to stripes, squares, waves and more.

A specific number of circles seems to be the central design for the Dzi bead (at least in feng shui); as most Dzi beads are classified by the number of eyes/circles they contain. The popular Dzi beads jewelry has up to 7, 12 or 21 eyes; and the meaning of the eye symbol used in jewelry and home decor is really easy to understand.

The image of the eye has always been a very powerful symbol in all ancient cultures. The eye is vigilant, all-seeing and protective, thus the wearer of jewelry with the eye design is somewhat protected by its vigilance.

The closest counterpart to Dzi bead, and just as popular, is the Turkish eye bead jewelry that serves the same protective purpose as the Dzi bead. Usually made from glass, the deep blue and white colours of the Turkish "evil eye" bead jewelry promote a calm state of mind and reassurance of protection from malevolent energies.

Even though the Turkish eye bead jewellery is used in a variety of charms, from keychains to wall ornaments, the Dzi bead jewelry goes a bit further because it combines the circle/eye design with a variety of other shapes and colours.
