Chinese Zodiac Ox Gold Pendant Necklace




The Chinese zodiac Ox necklace is informed by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Ox (Niu 牛), the second of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. The Ox sign is famed for its thoroughness and strength. Honest and trustworthy to the bone, those born under the sign of the Ox have unwavering principles and heightened ambition, bestowing much value and significance to both their family and their work. Oxen are enduring and resilient and, while they can struggle with sudden changes in circumstance, they are usually able to turn hardship to their advantage. People born in the year of the Ox are also extremely dependable, making them loyal friends and faithful, loving partners.

Chinese calligraphy is an aestheticised form of handwriting, a way of expressing language as an art form filled with meaning. Each piece in this collection is hand-carved by Loveness Lee as a way of practicing Chinese calligraphy in metal, a shared form of expression between two intimate forms of handcraft. Loveness Lee skilfully weaves history and tradition into stunning abstract designs: your own small slice of destiny and fortune, to be worn, gifted, treasured, and loved.

NB: The Chinese zodiac calendar begins at Chinese New Year, which falls on a different date between 21 January and 20 February each year. If you were born in January or February, take extra care in determining your sign, and check whether your birthday fell before or after Chinese New Year. We have a Chinese Zodiac date explorer here.
