Chinese Zodiac Tiger Gold Pendant Necklace

£158.00

Details

The Chinese zodiac Tiger necklace is influenced by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Tiger (Hu 虎), the third of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. Courage, self-assurance, competitiveness, and spontaneity: these are the traits that make a typical Tiger! As such, those born under the sign of the Tiger are often extremely charismatic; while the popularity this brings can be offset by a tendency towards irritability and impulsiveness, Tigers are, ultimately, recognised as charming friends and respected colleagues.

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.
