Our elegant 24Kt yellow gold plated sterling silver lotus blossom charm has ten petals cast in such realistic bas-relief detail you can almost smell its perfume. The white-to-pink lotus flower grows from North Africa eastward to China, and has spiritual significance across many cultures. Its full, unfolding petals are said to suggest the expansion of the soul, while its pure beauty transcends the mud of its origin. Beyond its use as a symbol of rebirth and renewal, the lotus is a medicinal, food, and treasured ornamental plant. This charm comes with two hanging options: a cast-in 2.8mm (1mm inner diameter) jump ring holding a free-swinging 20ga 5mm soldered jump ring. Stamped 925. Slightly textured satin 14Kt yellow gold plated finish.
