An oval disc in the center of the rakhi is made of yellow metal. The outline of the disc is studded with topaz like stones and houses a symbol which is a composite of Om and Ganesh. The background of the symbol is a striking red resin. The tying thread of the rakhi is an open red cotton string. If you plan to send a simple auspicious rakhi to India then this would be appropriate as the symbols of Om and Ganesh represent the concept of prosperity and progress.
