But the adornments of the Amdo area, which includes the Tibetan autonomous counties and prefectures in Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region and Sichuan Province and in Northwest China's Gansu and Qinghai provinces, stand out for their lavishness and excellence.

Pendants in the Amdo area feature a large piece of coral or gemstone in the middle, which is a symbol of wealth.

 Amdo
Amdo is Tibet's northeastern province, and most of it was swallowed by the Chinese province of Qinghai in 1928.
This is in rich farmland but Amdo is mostly high rolling grasslands which can be wet (middle right photo).
The Goloks who live there made travel there dangerous before the Chinese subdued the bandits among them (most of the population - it was regarded as a worthy pastime) and now they just string up prayer flags everywhere (top left).

This picture is a good depiction of the mostly canola seed and barley crops of Tibetan farmers.
The elevation of Amdo is much lower then the farming valleys found in the Tibet autonomous region, which should allow them to grow much more diverse crops.
However, most of the Tibetans in Amdo still choose to grow traditional crops such as the ones pictured.

 US Navy Press Releases: AMDO Community Celebrates Silver Anniversary
AMDO's provide full-time aircraft maintenance and integrated logistics support throughout the life cycle for each naval aircraft and weapon system.
Based on studies conducted in the late 1950's and continuing through the early 1960's, the Chief of Naval Operations directed that a professional maintenance officer corps be established to oversee each aspect of aircraft maintenance, from the flight deck or overseas runways, to naval aviation depots and the systems command.
As a result of the vision and tireless efforts of CAPT Howard Goben and CDR Virgil Lemmon, the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS) formally proposed the establishment of the AMDO designator (1520) in June 1967, with community sponsorship provided by the Commander Naval Air Systems Command, currently VADM William C.
