The Chinese zodiac Dog necklace is influenced by the ancient Chinese calligraphy character of Dog (Gou 狗), the eleventh of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac. Those born in the year of the Dog are renowned for their earnestness and devotion, and are among the most noble of the zodiac animals. However, a pronounced sense of independence underpins a Dog’s decisions in life. This combination of loyalty and individuality means that Dogs find it easy to get along with almost anyone. 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. Hand crafted in Loveness Lee's London workshop. Due to the hand-crafted nature of all Loveness Lee jewellery there may be slight variations from the images shown. Individually cast in Sterling Silver and Vermeil Gold Plated in the UK. Delicate Sterling Silver Vermeil Gold Plated 18" chain. Hallmarked at the Assay Office London.
