By Charlotte Silver Lotus Rain NecklaceBy Charlotte
By Charlotte's latest collection builds on her love for the lotus flower. The roots of a lotus flower extend into the mud, with the stem growing through the water, and the flower blossoming above the surface.
In Buddhism, the heart of beings is like an unopened lotus, when the virtues of Buddha develop in the heart, the lotus flower blossoms. The lotus flower has come to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness.
By Charlotte's silver lotus rain necklace is a lariat style necklace featuring a single lotus bud pendant intricately crafted in sterling silver on one end and a single polished rose quartz on the other end, on a fine sterling silver chain. Rose quartz promotes unconditional love, forgiveness and infinite peace. Simple, delicate and understated, all the qualities we love about By Charlotte's jewellery.
All By Charlotte jewellery arrives giftboxed, complete with care instructions. The By Charlotte range is designed to be delicate and fine, so care needs to be taken when wearing the jewellery.

All sterling silver, rose gold plated and gold plated pieces are ceramic plated. The ceramic plating protects the base metal from tarnishing and ensures the plating lasts for as long as possible. Gold and rose gold plated pieces are 3 micron plated, meaning the jewellery is layered thrice over with 18k gold plating.
To maintain the luster of By Charlotte's jewellery, please follow the below care instructions:
Do not shower or swim with the jewellery.
Chlorinated water and seawater must be avoided.
Pieces set with crystals in particular must avoid water; otherwise the crystals will lose their beautiful sparkle.

Avoid contact with creams and lotions.
Do not sleep with the jewellery on.
Do not exercise with the jewellery on.
When not being worn, store the jewellery in the provided By Charlotte box or somewhere safe away from sunlight and open air. Solid sterling silver jewellery may be polished and cleaned using a silver polishing cloth. 14k and 9k solid gold jewellery should be cleaned using a polishing cloth or dipped in a jewellery cleaning solution. While By Charlotte jewellery has been designed and produced to last for as long as possible, as with all gold plated jewellery, re-plating may be necessary every now and then.
