The cut-out technique used in the bold pendant really highlights the flamboyant features of the Chinese dragon: The twisting serpentine body, blade-like claws, fiery tail, spikey mane, and whip-like whiskers all combine to make this a dramatic and uniquely-shaped pendant with many satisfying textures and details.

Framed by a light and inconspicuous circular border, the dragon is further enhanced with an asymmetrically placed round garnet cabochon. The stone has a bezel-type setting without any back, so that more light is allowed to shine through the stone to make it look more lively.

Unlike their counterparts in Western culture, dragons in the East are seen as symbols of good luck and fortuitous omens, to be loved and worshiped. Since ancient times, Easterners have known dragons to be friendly, gentle and wise. Ancient Chinese texts, for example, established the dragon as a water animal, a bringer of life-giving water and bountiful harvests. From there, the dragon's reputation grew to become a symbol of prosperity, longevity, fertility and benevolence. The dragon also came to be honored as one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac. Someone born in the Year of the Dragon inherits many of its admirable characteristics: Lucky, honorable, successful and powerful.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants. I've also included a photo of a cute necklace we made for a customer with many of our themed charms.
