Objects and symbols can be powerful and in some cases they can carry a meaning which you personally feel spiritually connected with. To wear such spiritually and meditative infused jewelry can remind you to remain mindful and present in whatever situation life puts you in.
If you’re lucky you have one or two friends that are spiritually acute and awake, these are individuals whom merely with their presence bring you into a state of mindfulness. Perhaps you are this one that is the spiritual odd-ball in your group of friends and family, if so, blessings!
Sometimes we show far too little appreciation for the mere existence of the other. There comes a time when the most beautiful thing you as a friend can do is to concretely show that you appreciate and understand him/her for who he/she is.
With that in mind, in this list we’ve hand-picked 10 mesmerizing necklaces and pendants that exude meditativeness, necklaces that you can very well gift to someone you hold dear in your heart, whether its a close friend, your partner, family member or even yourself, quite frankly it doesn’t really matter.
What does matter is that you show your conscious appreciation and love.
So then, let us begin!
Bud and Blossom Lotus Pendant
One of the big reasons why lotus flowers are so highly esteemed in certain spiritual traditions is because of the symbolism that is derived out of the life span of a lotus flower. The power to rise up from the mud in order to see the beautiful face of the sun in blooming fashion.
Lotus flowers can represent each and every life, the ascension to the beautiful heights of existence. If your friend is going through a hard time, what the buddhist would call the state of suffering, you can find and provide some comfort in the shape of a graceful lotus flower necklace.

Kybalion Pendant Necklace (Tree of Life)
“As above, so below, As within, so with out.” This is one of the most potent spiritual quotes out there. It brings the macrocosm and microcosm together by attempting to dissolve the dualistic mindset prevalent in us humans.
If I’m not mistaken it was the Egyptian sage Hermes Trismegistus that is known for having uttered these timeless words. In fact these same words were a core tenet of the esoteric mystical tradition in hermeticism.
That being said, taking into consideration the tree of life as the background to the quote, this necklace is an excellent gift choice if you want to inspire unity and peace of mind.

White Chalcedony Gemstone Point Pendant Necklace
Some people believe that crystals, stones, gems have inherent powers residing within them, as some are supposed to be good for healing while other good for attracting love and what have you. Whether this is true or not is definitely up for grabs, however, what can be said to be true is one’s own subjective capacity to project meaning and quality to the surrounding world.
In other words, if you decide that this gemstone has a special meaning and quality to it that you feel, then in a subjective sense that is precisely what it is.
Crystals are compelling, they feel so primordial and so at home in the natural world. This necklace can be a great choice to gift to someone who’s in a state of healing. This would indeed be perfect.

Labradorite Tear Shaped Gem Necklace
Speaking of the power of gems… This one is just beautiful.

I agree with him wholeheartedly.
