An important amulet pendant, abundant with symbols for health & luck, particularly for a new mother & child.
Two herons, signifying good fortune, encompass lotus flowers floating beneath a brilliant sunrise. The lotus has ancient associations with the origins of life, & dawn is also the triumph of new life after the dark of night. Pearls represent the female principle of life, & diamonds eternal love. The four knots in the chain are the four winds, symbolising eternal life & the balance of nature
