Sand dollars are among the world's most popular jewelry. They may be made out of real sand dollars or metals.
To many people, sand dollars represent Easter and Christmas. The center of this round-shaped sea creature features an image of a flower, an Easter Lily. There are also 5 slits on its body, which, according to legend, symbolize the wounds sustained by the Christ when he was crucified. The four wounds were caused by the nails that were driven into Jesus' hands and feet. The fifth wound came from the spear that was used by a Roman soldier who pierced Jesus' side. The death of the Christ was in fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
But the sand dollar also represents a joyful event, Jesus' birth. The image of a star at the center of the Easter Lily is interpreted as the Star of Bethlehem. This legendary star guided the three wise men to the manger where the Son of God was born.
The John Medeiros Sand Dollar Necklace features two sand dollars in its chain necklace. They shine with hope and peace. The golden charms are designed with small Cubic Zirconia crystals which spotlight the Easter Lilies. You'll adore the brilliance and intricate hand-carved details of this classic jewelry.
