Lanterns are a very popular and typical symbol of many Asian cultures at Lunar New Year. Lanterns have the symbolic meaning of light - to usher in good luck for the new year and push away any negativity.
There are many traditional decorations for good luck, but lanterns hold a special place for me. Tet is always a happy and festive time, and my family gatherings are always loud with laughter and stories. We always have little lanterns decorated on branches of silk yellow apricot blossoms. Nana would tell me stories about my Ong Ngoai, who passed away a few months before I was born.
The lanterns are made with pearlised deep red frames, and light gold inserts. A gold thread tassel is attached. The earrings measure 7.5cm in height (top of earring stud to the bottom of the tassel) and 2.5cm in width. The earrings are finished with hypoallergenic steel studs and a comfort backs.
PREFER THIS AS A BROOCH? I HAVE YOU COVERED FOR THAT TOO! The brooch will have a push pin back. The brooch measures 7cm in length including the tassel. Please select the brooch option in this listing.
Representation is incredibly important at Ana ma Petit Tresor. This collection for Lunar New Year has been carefully designed with heartfelt thought. I designed this to honour my cultural heritage and share my heritage with pride and love. I truly hope you enjoy these pieces with this in mind. Diversity is strength in our community.
