This Bodhi Silver Plate real leaf pendant is stunning, worn by itself or layered with other leaves in our collection. This pendant measures approximately 60mm x 75mm.
Our stunning leaves are skeletonised to leave their veins intact. The leaf is then preserved through electroforming, a process where the leaf is slowly encased in copper to strengthen it. The leaf is finished in a heavy layer of sterling silver. Their size, shape and patination will vary, enhancing their individual nature and creating a truly unique piece of jewellery.
The word bodhi means “awakening” and is considered a sacred tree in India. The bodhi tree is believed to be where the Buddha experienced his spiritual awakening and enlightenment. Even before this, the tree was associated with Vishnu, a Hindu God, known as the sustainer of the universe. Indeed, ancient Indian art represents Vishnu resting underneath the bodhi tree. The seeds of the bodhi tree are connected to Buddhism and traditional Buddhist meditation, commonly used for mala beads or meditation bracelets.
All of our pendants are supplied with a complimentary chain of your choice. Our chains are made with a base metal of brass and plated in either 24 carat gold, rose gold or sterling silver. Each chain has two lengths, meaning you have twice the choice on how to wear your piece with that favourite outfit! Our chains are available in 18 inch (46cm), 24 inch (61cm), 33.5 (85cm).
All of our jewellery is beautifully packaged as standard in our environmentally friendly gift boxes.
