Champa Kali is a very old, traditional design, and is the precursor to the paisley design. It's a pan-Indian design representing the fragrant flower buds of the ‘champa’ tree, rendered in this stunning one-off piece in high quality Sterling Silver.
Buds are given as offerings to Shiva and other deities. These beautiful flower-bud necklaces are believed to ward off evil spirits. It was under one of these wonderfully scented trees that the Buddha gained enlightenment, the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya.
