Pendants

 

Our Traditional Art and Artifacts Pendants includes pendants of all sizes and weights, crafted in genuine sterling silver, using traditional Indian crafts that have survived over hundreds of years.

 

An example is 'The Flower of Life' which is the modern name given to a geometrical ffigure composed of multiple, evenly-spaced & overlapping circles, arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry like a hexagon.

 

The 'Flower of Life, 'Seed of Life' and 'Tree of Life' have all become much loved and well-known patterns used for Jali cut-out work featured in our pendant collection.

 

Some designs in our collection feature genuine Indian coins, collected from villages in Rajasthan and set into solid sterling silver settings.

 

We have also included pendants that feature Mughal Miniature Paintings - a creative form of art that has been practised over generations. The small paintings created on silk or hand-made paper, often feature Hindu deities, landscapes, flowers or animals. Set into sterling silver and protected by glass, these small pieces of art make beautiful and unusual pendants that are truly unique.

 

The gemstones chosen for our gemstone feature pendants range from the better known and much-loved stones like Moonstone, Labradorite, Amethyst and Opal, to less known Agates and Jasper - each one unique and of exceptional quality.

 

Some gemstones have been set within elaborate granulation or ffiligree designs while others offer a more contemporary, sleek and modern look.

 

Please check for the details provided for each pendant in the description, stating size of pendant and stone as well as measurement of drop which includes the bail. Each gemstone pendant on offer will show the exact item you are purchasing.

 

The contemporary sterling silver pendants are beautiful charms of various sizes to be added to your silver chains, cords or ribbon necklaces - a large sized bail is making this possible for you.

 

Please note that the advertisements are for the pendant only - the chain visible in some photos is not included.

 

SilverSari has connected with jewellers residing in Bali, offering beautiful jewellery pieces of exceptional quality!

 

All pieces are crafted by hand in the local area, providing employment and developing of skills - only genuine sterling silver, pearls and gemstones are used. Please note that handcrafted items are produced by a real person, not a machine.

 

Mabe Pearls are quite different from 'normal' pearls due to the way they are formed. Instead of growing inside the body of the mollusk creature, as is the case with other pearls, mabe pearls grow against the inside shell. This process causes mabe pearls to have a flat side, instead of being spherical, or at least rounded like standard pearls - this is also the reason why mabe pearls are sometimes called 'half pearls'. Mabe pearls come in a wide range of beautiful pearl colors, ranging from light pinks, to blue/grey shades.

 

The Mabe pearls used for our jewellery are Indonesian salt water pearls, farmed for 11 months on a Sulawesi oyster farm in the South Seas. When the 'Blackwing Oyster' is harvested after 11 months, all parts of the mollusc are used: shellfish for food, mabe pearl for jewellery and the shells for further adornment uses - nothing is wasted.

 

Buddhist, Jain and Hindus belief Chakras to be vital energy centres of the body. Each chakra is associated with a particular area of the body and a color of the spectrum. Blockages or interruptions of the flow of this energy is believed to cause illness, confusion and emotional difficulty.

 

We have different shapes of chakra pendants available at SilverSari each pendant features genuine gemstones.

Om is not a word but rather an intonation, which, like music, transcends the barriers of age, race, culture and even species. It is made up of three Sanskrit letters, aa, au and ma which, when combined together, make the sound Aum or Om. It is believed to be the basic sound of the world and to contain all other sounds.

 

'Omh/Aum' is regarded as the reflection of the absolute reality. The past, the present and the future are all included in this one sound with all that exists beyond the three forms of time is also implied in it.

The symbol (ॐ) comes from Devnagiri, a script based on Sanskrit, from which many Indian and other languages have emerged.

 

We feature several designs and sizes of ॐ Pendants - some with and some without gemstones.
