Description

I-Ch`ing Coin & Jade Earrings

Made of an authentic I-Ch`ing coin and a single jade bead, these striking earrings have a 7/8` diameter and measure 2” long with ear wires.

These coins, often strung on a cord, were used by the ancient Chinese to help make decisions based on the patterns of the toss as they related to the I Ch`ing, The Book of Change.

They are typically carved with four symbols on the front. Two indicate the emperor who reigned at the time the coin was made and the other two represent the date the coin was minted. Markings may also reference good luck and special events.

Reminiscent of the Met’s production of Giuseppe Puccini’s epic masterpiece, Turandot, set in Peking, China in legendary times.
