Description

The Jade Emperor (The Emperor in Heaven in Chinese folklore) ordered that animals would be designated as calendar signs and the twelve that arrived first would be selected. At that time, the cat and the rat were good friends and neighbours. When they heard of this news, the cat said to the rat: 'We should arrive early to sign up, but I usually get up late.' The rat then promised to awaken his friend and go together. However, on the morning when he got up, he was too excited to recall his promise, and went directly to the gathering place. On the way, he encountered the tiger, ox, horse, and other animals that ran much faster. In order not to fall behind them, he thought up a good idea. He made the straightforward ox carry him on condition that he sang for the ox. At last, the ox and he arrived first. The ox was happy thinking that he would be the first sign of the years, but the rat had already slid in front, and became the first lucky animal of the Chinese zodiac. Simon's 12 piece Zodiac collection is a fun play on this tale. Each creature is hand crafted with the up most attention to detail in Sterling Silver and sits upon a delicate chain. In the Chinese calendar, the year of the dog is 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018. Costume jewellery is fragile so protect it from knocks, chemicals, extreme temperatures and sunlight, and it'll look fabulous for years to come. Don't wear your jewellery while bathing and showering, (or swimming, jacuzzis, saunas or steam rooms) as moisture can cause tarnishing and weaken springs and clasps. With that in mind if you do get your jewellery wet be sure to dry it thoroughly. Chlorine, detergents, oils, make-up, hair spray and perfumes can all tarnish and generally damage your jewellery. Make sure to put it on last as the finishing touch to your outfit. After wearing your jewellery it's best to clean it with a soft cloth before putting it away in its protective pouch - this will remove any make-up and other oils it may have picked up. Finally when putting your chains away try to coil chains gently so as to prevent any damage in storage.
