Though the origin of worry beads may have been as prayer beads made by Greek Orthodox monks, modern worry beads have no religious significance. “Komboloi” is the Greek name for the worry beads which comes from the word for “prayer rope.” There also are some superstitious significance to different types of beads that may be included in the worry beads.
Traditionally, only men carried Greek worry beads. However, they are used by men and women now. Some worry beads made in Greece are designed to be sold to tourists. A trip to Greece is not necessary to find these gorgeous beads. These collectible beads can be found for sale on the internet and in some jewelry stores.
Popular for 6,000 years, Turquoise has inspired the people of many different cultures and nations over the entire course of mankind’s written history. Today Turquoise is more popular than ever as modern designers incorporate Egyptian, Persian and Native America motifs with modern silversmithing and production techniques.
