Shankari's Jewelry Om and Heart Pendants Hot in Hollywood

The Om Collection by Shankari has been extremely popular among celebrities, such as "Desperate Housewives" star Brenda Strong,"In Justice" star Constance Zimmer, MelissaRivers and others. 


LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 02/06/2006 -- Shankari jewelry featuring Om symbols, hearts and abstract designs is all the rage in Hollywood. Brenda Strong, who narrates ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and appears on the show periodically as Mary Alice Young, spotted the Omkara Pendant IX on make-up artist T.C. Thecia Luisi, and requested one for herself. The Om symbol is especially meaningful to yoga practitioners, like these two women who both teach yoga part-time, because it represents the source of all creation and other concepts embraced by the yoga community.

The Omkara Pendant IX features a sterling Om symbol surrounded by a Carnelian ring, representing perceptiveness and protection. At four points on the pendant are Fire Opal Triplets, which have the power to gather feelings of passion while overcoming pain from past experiences of failure, according to Shankari, who designs each piece of jewelry with a special intention for the wearer.

Another yoga-practicing celebrity drawn to Shankari's Om pendants is Constance Zimmer, star of ABC's "In Justice" and HBO's "Entourage," who has the original Omkara Pendant. This piece features an Om symbol atop a White Fiber Optic stone, surrounded by Opal triplets. It is meant to help you see more clearly and to support you in achieving victory over any past painful experiences.

Hearts attracted stars at Sundance Film Festival, including Jessica Beil, who wore a Shankari Amethyst heart pendant. Following the screening of "Open Window," the film's star Robin Tunney snapped up Shankari's heart-shaped Clarity Pendant XI. Made of a White Fiber Optic Stone, embellished with a Pearl and a Garnet and sterling silver accents, this pendant is intended to help one see more clearly.

Folk legend Judy Collins, who sang at the festival, selected the Spirituality Pendant IX, which features a large Amethyst for spirituality and strength, Shankari's distinctive "wings of freedom," Peridot for cleansing and healing and Gaia for a clear channel for earth magic.

Other celebrities who have Shankari jewelry include Halle Berry, Kate Hudson, Ashley Judd, Mena Suvari, Hillary Duff, Ashlee Simpson and Isabella Rossellini.
