Although most immediately associated with the religions of India and Tibet, the mandala, literally "Circle" is one of the most potent symbols of humankind shown in this dainty jewelry sterling silver necklace. Its circular form and concentric structure reflect the shape of the universe outside and the sense of perfection within. Concentration on its form and content is an aid to prayer and meditation, leading eventually to a complete at-oneness with the world. Christian "mandalas" appear in the form of rose windows and labyrinths and are one way of connecting the points of the cross.
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.
