Yin Yang

Pendant, Copper and Brass

According to old belief amulets and talismans are tools to trigger changes in life. In order to achieve this talismans transfer positive powers while amulets grant protection by absorbing negative energies.
The Chinese symbol Yin Yang stands for opposite but nevertheless complementary principles like e.g. female (Yin) and male (Yang). Yin is depicted in the dark part of the amulet and means "shady place", Yang is shown on the light half and means "sunny hill". The Chinese oracle I Ching (Book of Changes) associates Yang and Yin with the attributes strong and weak, active and passive and male and female and this amulet of protection is said to promote inner harmony and personal growth by uniting opposite principles.
The crusaders brought knowledge in craftsmanship, engineering and science from China, India, Arabia and Egypt to Europe. Among other things medieval knights of the 16th century therefore carried this Chinese amulet as a fortune charm on their belts - they therefore used this pendant not only as jewelry but also as an aid to achieve changes in their lives.
 
This pendant is made of brass and copper. With the exception of gold copper is the only colored metal and just like silver and gold it is classified as a precious metal. Due to its softness and malleableness copper is particularly suitable for the jewelry production. The brass, a copper zinc alloy, is responsible for the yellow golden parts of this piece of jewelry and the copper for the red golden ones.

About us

AvalonsTreasury.com: Arrow, Mist (Page: Yin Yang) [136 x 22 px]
We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces of jewelry in our collection.
 
Jewelry always had various functions which changed during the course of time: Because of the precious materials that were often used for its design it often was a valuable asset and sometime was even used as a currency. But especially in ancient cultures the spiritual meaning of a piece of jewelry was always important and the different motifs were symbols for the affiliation of its wearer to and his status in a social group. Furthermore jewelry can also serve a practical purpose like this is the case with safety pins, belt buckles and brooches.
 
On account of these many different purposes the meaning of single pieces of jewelry can be very different and depends on the belief and the point of view of the respective manufacturer. In some cultures, e.g., bracelets were used as wedding jewelry, like the wedding rings of today, in other societies necklaces served the same purpose. The symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry often cannot only be found in the piece itself, but also in its decorations or the used materials. In some cultures it is usual to give pieces of jewelry as a gift at certain important times in life which should emphasize the symbolic meaning of these events with the help of their decorations. These pieces were then often worn as amulets or talismans and were believed to protect and support its wearer during this new situation in life.
 
Besides the various symbols and designs different cultures use for their pieces of jewelry also a variety of materials are deployed in jewelry production. At the beginning of mankind primarily pearls made of wood and bones and shells were crafted to pendants, since these rather soft materials could easily be processed and were readily available. Later on especially precious metals like gold and silver and various gems were used for valuable jewelry. Today the selection of materials available for the production of jewelry is especially large and various.
