Save the Elephants Green Bead Necklace




Who does’t love elephants? If you’ve witnessed them in the wild, it’s hard not to be humbled by these majestic creatures. They have been revered in many cultures all over the world and the symbology associated with them makes this necklace all the more special.

In the Hindu culture, Ganesh, a deity portrayed in the form of an elephant is believed to remove obstacles, bring good fortune and blessings to new undertakings. As a patron deity of art and science, he is associated with wisdom and discernment.

In Buddhist legend, Buddha’s mother dreamt that a white elephant entered her womb during her pregnancy; the royal sages interpreted this to mean that her child was destined for greatness as a universal monarch or buddha.

The white elephant has since been considered a sacred symbol and represents authority, royalty, compassion, truth and kindness.

In Christian symbolism the Elephant is an icon of temperance, patience, and chastity.

Many African cultures venerate the elephant as a symbol of power. In the wild, they are fiercely protective of their young and herd members, and represent loyalty, reliability and pride. They are highly intelligent and never forget.

The eco-friendly green bead is made from recycled glass, and the colour symbolises abundance, harmony and youth. Celebrate the Earth’s beautiful natural heritage with this lovely necklace.
