Sep 13, 2009 7:00 AMDiamonds are a girl's best friend, especially since glam is back with a vengeance, and the Susan Cummings Diamond Mandala Pendant ($1870) is something worth gawking at. This stunning pendant is cast 18K gold and diamond, hand formed by the artist. Create dueling textures by stringing this on a leather cord or stick to the standard metal chain. This piece is a real beauty, but we wanted to know more about this mandala business. Check it out... A Mandala (lit. Sanskrit for essence) is a cosmic map used to attain a sacred space to induce tantric meditation in Hindu and esoteric (Vajrayana) Buddhist practices. The visual characteristics and images of mandalas change based on the culture which produced it, but all represent microcosms of the Universe. We think diamonds should be worshiped - that's all we know.
