Description

Qing Coin & Jade Earrings

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

Qing coins were 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 mythical China.

  • Authentic Qing coin

History

Turandot

World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1926.

Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi.

Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano. Conductor Arturo Toscanini oversaw Alfano’s contribution and led the world premiere.
