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 18K gold 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. The shortest strand measures 14" and longest strand measures 17" with a hook and eye closure.
