The lotus flower is the heart's inner shrine. It is the symbol of creation and manifestation in the Hindu religion. Inspired by the power and beauty of the lotus, recycled sterling silver lotus petals hang from three layers of graduated chain. This elegant and classic necklace shimmers beautifully at night, but is delicate enough to wear during the day. Shortest strand is 16.75 inches and longest strand is 19.75 inches in length with a hook and eye closure.
