Details

This one of a kind 21 inch necklace celebrates the Chinese Year of the Rat with a red agate amulet that features a rat and the Chinese symbol for rat on one side, and Chinese characters on the other side. Exquisite silver needle agate faceted ovals in gray marbled with rust sit on either side of the pendant. The rest of the necklace blends coral agate nuggets in deep caramel-orange, blue-gray labradorite roundels, and dark gray hematite tube beads. Antique silver daisy spacers and etched antique silver rounds match the antique silver toggle clasp that finishes the piece.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

As some of you already know, I am doing a series of necklaces in celebration of the various Chinese zodiac signs. Just a small disclaimer: I am not Chinese. The necklace designs are not particularly "Chinese." You don't have to be Chinese to enjoy these necklaces!

More Info

The Rat is the first sign in the Chinese zodiac. As such, it is considered a symbol of opportunity and good prospects. People born in the Year of the Rat are said to be intelligent, accomplished, charming, innovative, loyal, empathetic, and ambitious. At their worst, they can be secretive, anxious, calculating, possessive, stingy, excessive, neurotic, critical, and egotistical.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: The Chinese New Year does not fall on the same date every year, so it is essential to check the calendar to find the exact date on which each Rat Year actually begins. To determine your Chinese zodiac sign, consult a book or web site such as the one at this link: http://www.annabelburton.com/chinese_years.html
