Within Miao minority, the styles of clothing and jewelry differ from region to region. For Tibetans, jewelry is also a part of everyday life as well as a reflection of their religious beliefs. Tibetan jewelry often represents deities or ritual items. There were many unforgetable figure paintings about national style of jewelry in Zeng Chuanxing’s works.
