This Om Pendant features a sterling silver back and edges, which means that it will not tarnish the way that some other pendants might. The middle of this pendant features a painted Om Sign in the middle of a double Eight Leaf Lotus Blossom. While normally written in English as "Om," it is more correctly spelled as "Aum." It is considered a sacred symbol in the Sanskrit and Hindu languages, and this word is used before every prayer or ritual mantra. In Hindu creation theory, the universe was void until the sacred sound of Aum self-manifested, and from the energy of its vibrations the whole universe came forth. The three letters in the word Aum (namely "a", "u", and "m") symbolize the creation, existence and destruction of the universe. Or they are also thought to represent the Holy Trinity of Hinduism, Lords Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
These Om Symbol Pendants are a little bigger than some of our other pendants. They measure 1.25 Inches in diametre, and you can also turn it into an earring.
