"Size of beads - 3mm or 8mm? Stated that beads are 3mm (quite small), but dimensions state 8mm. The beads look like they may be 8mm. Thanks"
Nice mala prayer beads for the price. The tassel is cheap, the beads are not the best, but overall it looks really pretty and it worth the price, in my opinion....

Handmade Polyester 'Pray' Aventurine Prayer Beads (India)
Rituu honors Hinduism and Buddhism with a glistening mala that is crafted by hand with carnelian, the stone of energy and the July birthstone. Also known as prayer beads or rosary, it consists of 108 malas or beads, sometimes 109, which are flicked with the thumb during meditation. That way the person may concentrate fully on repeating mantras. In Buddhism, the 108 beads represent the human passions, while in Hinduism their symbolism is more complex. The number may refer to the names of Vishnu and Shiva in the Mahabharat; the 108 Upanishads; the number of deities of knowledge and various sciences; and the various permutations of the soul's defects, amongst others.
Story Behind The Art:
"I grew up here and had a lot of fun. The vibrant and architectural beauty of the city is a sight to enjoy. I remember spending our weekend time in the park and strolling around the monuments. This always took us to the ancient era of kings and queens.Though I have always been fascinated by the art of jewelry, I never got to actually be in the field until I got married. Many people in Jaipur have a long lineage in crafts and trade, which has been handed down from generation to generation. And my husband is one of them. His family has worked in the design and crafting of jewelry for many years and, when I married him, I was exposed to its vast and enigmatic beauty. I would spend endless time watching them work. It was a delight to see".
