Pure Agarwood Jewellery Set - "Birdcage"

$595.00

ST/AS-BC

This very special and unique set comes complete with a necklace, bracelet and earrings. It is made of sterling silver and the finest Vietnam Hoi An Agarwood. Known as the "birdcage" this set has deep and heartfelt meaning in its design.

"In an ancient ritual dating back centuries to the Imperial Qing dynasty, bird lovers head to parks and teahouses with their birds in fanciful birdcages each morning. They believe that birds cooped up indoors in crowded apartments become depressed and lose their will to sing. Many bird owners believe their bird's happiness and singing ability will improve as the birds socialize among themselves. Beautiful birdcages with singing birds populate the parks and teahouses as birds and their owners socialize during this early morning tradition."

We have now stylized the traditional Chinese Birdcage into this bright, sterling silver necklace and 'Birdcage' pendant.

Each Birdcage pendant carries three Vietnam Hoi An Agarwood beads. The necklace shines in the light and is an eye-catching design ideal for everyday wear.

Agarwood is an amazing wood - valued in many cultures for its distinctive fragrance and used as incense and perfume. The fragrance of Agarwood is light, complex and pleasing, with few natural equivalents. At a glance, the Agar tree is an ordinary plant growing deep within the tropical forests of Asia. But something special happens if the tree is infected by fungus - the tree creates a resin as a defense mechanism. Over an extensive period of time (up to 100 years), the resin saturates the wood, resulting in a dark heartwood with a divine fragrance. This rare wood is Agarwood (also commonly called Aloeswood, Gaharu or Oud). Agarwood is an amazing wood that has been highly prized for centuries.

Many believe Agarwood contains the positive life energy (Qi) of growth, expansion, new beginnings, nourishment and health. They are carried or worn to manifest positive energy and good fortune.
