In the West, dragons have often been portrayed as frightful creatures, monsters that storybook heroes must vanquish. But in China, dragons are regarded as symbols of luck, prosperity, and power. They frequently appear in Chinese art and mythology, and are also part of the Chinese zodiac. These sterling silver dragons are bedecked with deep red garnet gemstones that dangle from the dragons' claws. These earrings measure about 1.75 inches long (from base of earring hook to bottom of earring) and about 0.625 inches wide.
Though inspired by Chinese mythology, this piece is actually a combination of various cultures. It was crafted in the rich tradition of Indonesian silver smithing, making it a truly eclectic piece.
