There are a lot of ups and downs to one’s life. Some of us tend to excessively think of the bad times and wish there was something we could do to bring more happiness into the world around us. That’s where things tend to stop most of the time, and the cycle continues. On the other hand, Buddhists acknowledge that there’s too much suffering going on in the world and are making an effort to change that for the better, starting with themselves.
If you know someone who has started developing an interest in this seemingly exotic eastern teaching, you should encourage them and embrace the better person they’re trying to become! An earnest effort to discover the deeper truths that lies beneath what we perceive as real in our normal lives is the sign of an inquisitive intelligence, and is worth developing. Your support in this is bound to mean the world to them, so why not show it with a great gift for him or her, a meaningful Buddha pendant graced by some of the faith’s core concepts?
Enter Nano Jewelry’s Buddhist jewellery collection. If you’ve been browsing some of our other faith-themed collections like those with Christian gift items and mystic jewelry, you’ve already seen what birthday present ideas and wondrous gifts you can surprise a spiritual person with. Here we’ve gathered Buddha gifts that expose some of Buddhism’s teachings and make them accessible in a way that’s both intimate for their wearer and appealing for anyone who catches a glimpse of them.
An elementary Buddhist concept anyone can understand and benefit from is loving kindness or metta meditation. When practicing it, we extend our sincere hope for the well-being of all life on Earth, from the smallest insect through our loved ones to the ones who have wronged us. It’s not easy to wish someone who you mistrust or fear all the best in the world at first, but meditation necklaces help to develop what might only be a phrase at first into a life-changing belief.
The most basic form is a gold Buddha pendant that has no decorations other than the words of the meditation, and an endless golden knot. The words guide one on its final and most difficult step, while the knot is a reminder of the need to combine wisdom and compassion in all you actions. A more elaborate necklace with a more complete version of the Buddhist mantra with a breathtaking mandala frame is there to both inspire and impress if you think that the first one was a bit too plain.
Metta is a practice everyone should embrace, so we’ve designed a couple of meditation gifts either a guy or a girl will love to wear. The meditation’s words spiral out into eternity on their onyx gemstones, with the serene approval of an intricately-inscribed Buddha who watches over them. Whether gold or silver, a piece of meditation jewelry like it will spur them on to embrace life with renewed vigor.
For women who enjoy the practice on all its levels, you should consider one of these general gold Buddhist necklaces for meditation. These cute necklaces for her show a wonderfully stylized woman in a relaxed, meditative pose along with “I love meditation” which lets everyone around her know what kind of lifestyle she deems worthwhile. Excellent for both spicing up her jewelry collection and helping her meet new, like-minded people, they’re a great gift for her to be sure.
Apart from the wide selection of necklaces that focus on meditation, there’s also meditation gifts featuring a few of the most well-known Buddhist sutras. The best known of all, the Heart sutra, tells of the way in which Buddhas reach enlightenment. Its final verses along with a golden image of the Buddha’s watchful gaze are inscribed on this unique necklace. Drawing wisdom from these words can become the first step on her own path to higher understanding.
Next is the Diamond sutra, a wise text which will remind her of how insignificant and transient the world really is. It’s an odd and soothing concept at the same time which is sure to help her put her own fears into perspective. To honor its name and its meaning properly, the small necklace’s golden heart frame has been adorned with a string of diamonds, giving it a look that is even more refined. The meditation gifts is especially striking if you make its central Zirconia the color of sapphire blue and will make a great gift for her.
The most beautifully decorated of our sutra-themed gifts, this Buddha necklace for men and women is adorned with the words of the Lotus sutra. Those that wish to embark on the journey of discovering the dharma of the universe will not only have the sutra as an inspiration – a magnificent golden portrait of the Buddha himself is there to show them their goal, and a representation of his footprint beneath the sutra’s text symbolizes that the path has already been laid out for them. Is the white gold of the necklace’s oval frame too flamboyant for you? The lotus necklace also has a gilded frame on offer which harmonizes well with its golden images.
Other than being of a great spiritual and personal significance to the wearer, all of the depictions found on our Buddhist jewelry collection are on an entirely different level from what you’re normally used to. Crafted from exclusive 24 karat gold of the highest quality and more detailed than anything other jewelry stores have on offer, they’re intricate reminders of what we should really strive for in life.
Whether you’re captivated by the mages of the Buddha and symbols associated with him, or appreciate the profound wisdom gleamed in reading a fraction of his teachings, the Buddha chain you ultimately choose can be refined even further by matching the lifelike color of its stone to a precious metal that brings out the best in it. You’ll also get to take advantage of our streamlined checkout experience and get that cool present to the person who will enjoy it the most in a matter of days.
