Why are lotus necklaces such a craze? For starters, they are effortlessly stunning and versatile. Aside from its eloquent look, the lotus holds enormous symbolic meaning.  Ancient texts have regarded the lotus as a symbol of spiritual enlightenment and rebirth. Perception is everything when it comes to figuring out the meaning of a lotus. Buddhists and Hindus believe that the flower has a clean and pure appearance while ancient Egyptians noticed the lotus closes its petals and sinks into the water at nighttime; thereby associating it with rebirth and the Sun. No matter what ancient meaning you agree with, one thing is for sure; lotus necklaces are perfect for summer and we have given into the craze! Our top stylists at Ana Luisa have picked 3 lotus necklace styles for you to try and play around with.

1.Choker Lotus Necklace

Combine edginess with elegance in your choker lotus necklace! You will get a hint of that ancient spiritual feel mixed with the chic modern style of a choker. Feel free to pair your lotus choker with other choker necklaces for a stylish layered look. For those of you with cool skin undertones, a silver or white lotus would look absolutely stunning. If you have warm skin undertones, you will be sure to rock a gold or rose gold lotus necklace. Pair with a light-weight off the shoulder top and shorts for a breezy summer look.
