About Lotus Flowers

Lotus flowers figure in many of VT's jewelry designs, and its message of enlightenment and beauty resonates and is imbued in each piece--as it is carefully and respectfully handcrafted.  
The lotus flower is regarded in many different cultures, especially in eastern religions, as a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth. Its characteristics are a perfect analogy for the human condition: even when its roots are in the dirtiest of waters, the lotus produces the most beautiful flower.
The symbolism of a lotus flower also differs depending on its color. For instance, a blue lotus flower symbolizes a spirit's victory over knowledge and wisdom. White lotuses signify peace and purity, while red lotuses, much like other red flowers, mean love and compassion.
