A delicate little lotus flower hangs from a 1mm sterling silver bead chain. This necklace can be worn alone or layered with other necklaces. While this is great for adults, it is a nice size for young girls too. Buddhists liken the unfolding of the lotus petals to the unfolding of the divine within the human self. The closed bloom represents the heart with its infinite potential for enlightenment; the open blossom represents the enlightened self. In Buddhism the lotus blossom represents a heart opening. The lotus flower blooms on the surface of water, with its roots deep below in mud - making it a symbol of light and beauty emerging from darkness.
This simple yet elegant pendant is stamped 925 and measures 3/8" x 3/8" on a 16" or 18" sterling silver bead chain. See item #7080 for matching dangle earrings.
