These Nalini earrings are designed to resemble a lotus bud. The unopened bud is representative of a folded soul that has the ability to unfold and open itself up to the divine truth. There are different depictions of a lotus bud. The ancient Egyptian scholars observed that the lotus closed its petals and sank into the water at close of day. Next day it emerges as a bud – reaching out to divinity – and therefore was a manifestation of rebirth like the Sun. The Egyptians therefore associated the lotus flower with the sun which also disappeared into the night, only to re-emerge in the morning. So, it symbolized the Sun and the creation.
The handcrafted lotus bud earrings are made of sterling silver, and accented with Swarovski crystal pearls to symbolize the calm it spreads.
Alternative available pearl options: Night blue/ Mauve / Silver Grey.
