The mala, the prayer beads, always has exactly 108 beads. It comes from Hinduism / Buddhism and is traditionally used for better focus in yoga & meditation. In the meantime, however, it has long since become a spiritual & decorative accessory in everyday life. A mala is something very personal, where the focus is often on the effect of a special gemstone on the wearer. However, it is also a wonderful thought that each pearl stands for the truth, while the small knots in between stand for the possibility of always turning things around for the better. It lies in your hand!
