ABOUT THIS BROOCH

The iconic Buddhist goddess of mercy, Quan Yin, is hand carved in glimmering, translucent multi-hued opal and enthroned atop an intriguing--composition of sparkling bright-white round brilliant-cut and gleaming baguette diamonds (totaling 2.00 carats). A wonderful and enchanting work of wearable art. 1 1/8 by 1 5/8 inches.

We thank Feng Shui consultant Anjie Cho for the following: 'Quan Yin (Kuan Yin or Guan Yin) is the bodhisattva of great compassion. A bodhisattva is a human being that has made a vow to dedicate all of their lifetimes to the enlightenment of all humankind. Bodhisattvas continue to reincarnate and return to the world to help guide others to enlightenment. Quan Yin is a gender-fluid symbol, as she is the feminine version of the masculine Avalokiteshvara (Chenezig in Tibetan). She has many different incarnations and is often portrayed seated or standing holding a lotus flower or a vase of water. One of the most popular beings in Buddhist iconography, Quan Yin is a figure of mercy and compassion who helps those in need.'

About Estate Jewelry

Though it calls to mind grand manor houses in the English countryside, “estate” is just a fancy way of describing any piece of jewelry with a previous owner. That’s pretty much everything in our collection. We tend to use “estate” to refer to pieces in our collection with a more modern or contemporary design, or vintage-inspired designs. These perennial gems are selected in harmony with our original antique and vintage pieces…they’re just a little bit younger!

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
