This handcrafted designer necklace showcases an elegant calligraphy-style character for Buddha and has been carefully modeled from a Chinese engraved glass amulet. On the reverse is the symbol of the Lotus, a blossom revered in many cultures, and particularly Buddhism, for its purity. In nature the flower emerges from stagnant and murky waters, yet produces a blossom of delicacy and perfection - a metaphor for the struggle to achieve enlightenment. This necklace makes a perfect gift for anyone interested in Eastern thought and practice.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
