Unique Mahjong Bracelet

For more than two thousand years, the game of mahjong has been a ‘royal tradition.’ Chinese legend recalls a beautiful woman kept in seclusion in the court of the King of Wu; to escape boredom, she invented a game using carved domino shaped pieces of bone and bamboo. When she was finished, she invited three of her maids to play her newly invited game. Today, you can be a part of this ancient tradition by enjoying a bracelet comprised of over a dozen hand painted tiles made from natural bone.
