Details

The Chinese zodiac Pig necklace is influenced by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Pig (Zhu 猪), the last of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. A person born in the year of the Pig will be an optimist almost the point of idealism, but such positivity will not prevent them from displaying genuine consideration, responsibility, and freedom. This generosity of spirit means that Pigs are always forgiving and understanding, but can also manifest as a carefree, sometimes lackadaisical attitude that others find frustrating!

Chinese calligraphy is the tradition of handwriting as an art form: an aesthetic, physical expression of language. Each piece in this collection is hand-carved by Loveness Lee as a way of practicing Chinese calligraphy in metal, a reciprocal relationship between two personal 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.
