Lucky Clouds ~ Pink
These earrings were inspired by the beauty and love for art in the Qing Dynasty. From their brilliant developments in colorful ceramics to the elegant headdresses worn by the Manchu women in the royal palace.
In Chinese culture, clouds are considered lucky not only because they bring rain to fuel the farm lands but also because cloud (云 [ wan4 ]) is a homophone for the word 运 [wan6] which means luck, fortune, and fate.
*Earrings are made with hypoallergenic ear hooks. Each pair also comes with a pair of clear earring backs.
The Manchu people of the Qing Dynasty had a special love for art. It was during this time that they developed new techniques in coloring and glaze in their ceramics which gave it a much more brilliant and sophisticated look.
