Lotus flowers grow from mud, yet bloom with beauty once they break the water’s surface.
The Padma Necklace honours the highs and lows of our journeys as we find ourselves in natural seasons of growth and bloom. It is a reminder to trust these patterns and surrender to a transformative human experience. A pear-shaped natural ruby symbolizes the sacred inner fire you carry within. This fire is your magic.
Gold vermeil pendant featuring a faceted pear-shaped ruby.
Gold-filled chain and lobster clasp - 3 length options available. Please contact us for custom chain lengths.
You will be prompted to select your desired length upon adding this necklace to your cart.
Rubies are magnets for expansiveness. They’re like the power suit or red lipstick of gemstones. They activate the energy systems in the body and are especially stimulative for the root chakra, which is like the building foundation of our energetic houses. If you’re looking to manifest big shifts, this vibration will harmonize with you. I describe ruby energy as a wise and enthusiastic best friend who believes in you more than you believe in yourself.
Not all rubies are created equal. The rubies used in this design vary in appearance and are not the same quality that is used in fine jewelry. Some may have more clarity than others, some may have brown or black inclusions, and some may even have small indentations on the surface. The latter are the result of geological processes and are not an indication that your ruby is scratched or structurally flawed (ruby is a very hard stone, with a ranking of 9 on the Mohs scale). Each of our rubies is beautiful in its own unique way and we hope you will love yours as much as we do :)
Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver and requires special care. To extend the life of your gold vermeil jewelry, remove when washing hands, showering, applying lotions or perfumes, using harsh cleansers, or working out. Always store your jewelry in a dry place, preferably in individual air-tight bags. Do not use chemical jewelry cleansers or polishing cloths on gold vermeil jewelry.
Gold vermeil jewelry will inevitably fade to a warm silver or a light 10K gold colour. This is the nature of plated jewelry. The rate of wear depends on care, climate and individual body chemistry, and may vary greatly on a case by case basis. As rings are worn on the hand, and are exposed to more frequent rubbing, they will often age more quickly than necklaces or earrings. We do not offer re-plating of our gold vermeil designs and all sales of gold vermeil jewelry are final.
Gold-filled jewelry is made by pressure bonding multiple layers of solid 14k gold over a core of high quality jeweller’s brass, resulting in a long-lasting, gold-coloured product. Contrary to popular belief, the gold in gold-filled jewelry is not mixed or blended with the base metal. As a result, those with brass allergies can typically wear gold-filled jewelry without issue. In theory, gold-filled items can retain their gold colour for decades. In practice, actual longevity will depend on how you care for your jewelry, the climate you live in and your body chemistry. We recommend following the same guidelines as you would for delicate jewelry - avoid contact with chemicals or soaps, and hand polish gently when required.
Handmade - please wear with care.
