The star of SHAMBALLA

Our guiding star, our spiritual and moral compass which inspires us in everything we do. We look to the Star of Shamballa for inspiration and we feel its power when strength is needed. The Star of Shamballa is a graphic version of a double Dorje – an ancient Buddhist symbol and artefact that has been part of our journey since the beginning. The Dorje is associated with many myths and legendary tales as it is considered the ultimate tool when capturing the ultimate source of energy: Lightning.

You can say it is the Buddhist version of Thor’s Hammer from Nordic mythology. Legend has it that the Dorje represents the thunderstroke of lightning which leaves humans in a state of enlightenment in the ultimate sense. Once truly enlightened, humans can detach themselves from love, food and even life itself. We consider the Dorje a pivotal part of our DNA which is why we have incorporated it into our logo, the Star of Shamballa, so that it can guide us throughout life.

Signature logo

The SOS is part of every Shamballa Jewels piece as our logo is always present on every bracelet, necklace or bangle. Our logo is engraved into our gold beads with a diamond in the centre. We use the Dorje in special pieces, too, like on the Laughing Skull Phurpa where half a Dorje sits on top of a laughing skull receiving ultimate enlightenment.

Our spiritual fascination leads us to inspire a compassionate way of living. From early stages of designs to the way we handle our business, treat our valuable employees and how we always consider the environment. Using ancient Buddhist philosophies in the way we do business comes with great responsibility which we strive to honour.
