White Lotus Flower Crescent Pendant on Textured Silver-plated Chain
Pure and minimal is this lovely Celtic Goddess moon crescent lotus necklace. A crescent sign whether moon points are facing up or down is a goddess sign. A crescent moon symbol is often associated with Celtic culture. I was first inspired when I found these Zola jewelry findings that had such great detail and design. Most of their products are tribal or exotic in nature. I first selected this exotic upside down crescent focal piece that I used with the moon points upward. Please check out the close-up photos where you can see the exquisite beaded details in this piece. To create the main focus of my necklace I used another Zola open lotus bead holder. The petals are very detailed and the antiqued etching makes them really stand out. To the center I inserted a Swarovski Austrian crystal cream pearl. The lotus flower charm will gently sway below the crescent moon. The entire pendant piece is attached to textured silver-plated cable chain. For the closure I used a .925 sterling silver spring ring clasp.
The overall length of the necklace is 18 inches or 46 centimeters. The pendant will add an additional 1 1/2 inch or 4 centimeters to the overall drape of the necklace. The necklace will come packaged in a complimentary jewelry pouch that can be used for storage or gift-giving.
In Buddhism the lotus is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness. The flower is considered pure as it is able to emerge from murky waters in the morning and be perfectly clean. Therefore in common with Egyptian mythology the lotus is seen as a sign of rebirth, but additionally it is associated with purity. The breaking of the surface every morning is also suggestive of desire, this leads to it being associated with spiritual enlightenment. The white lotus is known to symbolize Bodhi (being awakened), and represents a state of mental purity, and that of spiritual perfection; it is also associated with the pacification of one’s nature. This lotus is considered to be the womb of the world.
Caring for your FASHION jewelry: Remember that fashion jewelry is plated and is never meant to last a lifetime. The more you wear it, the more it will break down over time as is natural with all fashion jewelry. To add longevity to your piece keep these rules in mind.
Keep your jewelry away from the following as much as possible:
a. Water, lotion, perfume, or other harsh chemicals
b. NEVER wear jewelry in the pool or ocean
c. When NOT wearing, keep in a jewelry box or pouch
Always make your fashion jewelry the last thing you put on, and the first thing you take off. Wipe with a soft cloth to remove oils from your skin.

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!
