Beauty with versatility! This pendant can be worn alone, or used as a great charm holder. Crafted in 24k gold plated bronze, this beautiful open lotus flower has a stem that curves around to hold additional charms and hangs from an 18" gold filled saturn chain. 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. Dainty and classy, this is a great addition to any jewelry wardrobe. Pendant measures 1/2" wide x 1" in length and is suspended from an 18" gold filled saturn chain.
