Pearl Necklace Symbolizing a Continuous Circle
The delicate and subtle pearl necklace is made of a single perfectly round AA grade freshwater pearl. The use of round beads in a mala is a tradition that dates back over 7,000 years. The round bead is symbolic of a continuous circle, representing the wheel of life. In Hinduism, a perfect circle is a reminder of the endless fluidity, continuation and order of the universe. In Buddhism, the continuous circle represents the wheel of Dharma and reincarnation, symbolizing the continual flow of life from birth, life, death and rebirth.
This pearl necklace is a princess length, around 17″, making it ideal to wear with a bridal gown with a scoop, square, off the neck, or strapless neckline. It sits just below the collar bones at an elegant length that is comfortable and suits a variety of styles. It is a prefect alternative to the full malas our bridal collection, and is for the bride who wants a style that is subtle, minimalist, and delicate. Significantly, this pearl necklace is also a wonderful addition to a standard classic wardrobe, allowing you to wear a sacred piece of jewelry with absolute discretion. Importantly, this necklace can be worn with any outfit, for a statement piece of high quality jewelry that is also spiritual.
About Pearl Necklaces for Brides
Pearls are one of the most valued gems in the world. Before the 1900s, these gems were only found naturally, by opening thousands and thousands of oysters through diving. Now, freshwater pearls are more readily available. The historic rarity of pearls made them a signature piece of jewelry for special occasions and for a statement of refinement. The pearl teaches us to appreciate the beauty that emerges form the ebb and flow and life. It is a symbol of faith, innocence, and loyalty. The notion that pearls should be worn by brides, has its origin in Hinduism. The first historical reference to pearls as an appropriate piece of bridal jewelry is found in the tale where Krishna adorns his daughter in pearls on her wedding day.

We recommend this piece when the symbolism of purity of heart, loyalty, and devotion is desired in a simple but elegant style. If you desire an elegant and modern piece of jewelry, this is the perfect choice in our bridal collection.
Mantra for Working with Pearls
Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya
This mantra accepts the Divine order as pure and perfect. It is a mantra of faith and trust. In my mind, it is the mantra of eternal pure love, as it is a surrender to God. Moreover, it is the mantra of the true self, the soul and a devotion to its journey in this lifetime and reminds that you are not body or mind but that you are spiritual being, eternal in your nature. Finally, my favorite version of this mantra is a recording by Deva Premal and Miten.
