We don’t buy any Buddha or other Buddhist pendants from anywhere other than the temples we visit. We have had a lot of people recently asking us to buy their pendants from here or there. We just don’t buy any from outside the temples we know and respect.
The possibility for fake pendants is very high in Thailand and even higher outside Thailand. If you want cheap and fake pendants you can go to eBay. We saw some similar to ours that were selling very cheaply. These were made at jewelers, and not the temples. Please understand that some of the pendants on eBay are selling for less than we can even get at the temple. What that means is… fake pendants on Ebay.
So, if you want genuine Buddha pendants – we have them. If you want fakes – there are fakes of the original authentic pendants all over Ebay – we just saw some there. Go have a look if you are not Buddhist and don’t require the real amulets.
Why would you want the real ones then?
Good luck to you…
