Fire + Water Necklace
This product is currently sold out.
A finely beaded gold necklace with repeated markings in red for fire (— - - —) and water (- - — - -), oriented in opposing positions to one another.
This collection is inspired by Ba Gua (Eight Trigrams), an early system of notation in Chinese history that consists of eight symbols created from the arrangement of 2 straight lines, either solid — or broken - - .
These lines, respectively corresponding to the positive (Yang) and negative (Yin) principles of the universe, were combined to create trigrams to represent phenomena of the universe: heaven, earth, water, fire, river, mountain, wind and thunder.
Each of our pieces from this collection draws directly from the arrangement of these trigrams and the special pairings Yin and Yang pairings. This year we bring focus to fire and water.
Red is the color of luck, joy and happiness. We highlight red in our Lunar New Year collections as It is considered an auspicious color associated with warmth and life, and is believed to ward off evil spirits.
