  • Culture Meaning
    In traditional Chinese culture, the lotus is highly revered for its beauty and symbolic significance. Known as the "heavenly flower," the lotus represents purity, enlightenment, and spiritual awakening. Despite growing in muddy waters, the lotus emerges pristine and untouched, symbolizing the attainment of inner peace and harmony amidst the chaos of the world. The lotus is also associated with longevity, good fortune, and prosperity, making it a popular motif in art, literature, and jewelry design.
  • Chalcedony Culture

    In Chinese culture, chalcedony (玉髓 yù suì) has been highly valued and admired for its beauty and rarity since ancient times. It is a type of translucent quartz with a smooth and waxy texture, often appearing in shades of white, gray, and blue.

    In traditional Chinese medicine, chalcedony is believed to have various health benefits and is used in remedies for illnesses such as fever, insomnia, and headaches.

    In Chinese art and jewelry, chalcedony has been used to create beautiful and intricate carvings and adornments, often representing auspicious symbols such as dragons and phoenixes. Due to its beauty and rarity, chalcedony has been considered a precious material for centuries.

  • About Silver Enameling(烧蓝)

    Silver enameling (烧蓝)is a traditional Chinese enameling technique that originated in the Beijing region. This technique is a type of Chinese Cloisonne (景泰蓝 Jintai Blue) that was first developed during the Ming Dynasty, drawing on enameling skills from the Middle East.

    In the Qing Dynasty (1636-1912), the technique was refined to imitate the rich blue-green color of kingfisher feathers, which were prized for their beauty and used extensively in luxury jewelry. However, due to the cruelty of the Kingfisher Craft (点翠), the use of actual feathers was eventually banned, leading to the development of Silver Enameling as a substitute.

    Unlike traditional Cloisonne techniques, which typically use copper as a base, Silver Enameling uses silver, as its name suggests. This not only gives the finished product a unique look and feel, but also makes it more valuable due to the higher cost of silver. Experience the rich history and exquisite beauty of this traditional Chinese craft with our collection of Silver Enamel jewelry, crafted using the finest materials and techniques.
