On first glance you may not even notice that these pretty earrings are lotus flowers.
The teardrop shaped border subtly changes the character of the lotus, which is so recognizable by its many tapered petals. When confined by a border, the flower becomes a little more abstract, an ornamental pattern within the overall earring.
Visually, the teardrop shape is a perfect complement to the lotus: It echoes the pointed tips of the flower's petals. On another level, it can also be read as a drop of water, since lotus flowers grow mostly in shallow ponds.
