The beloved Buddhist goddess of compassion is featured on our elegant jade Guan Yin pendant necklace. Also known as Quan Yin or Kuan Yin
, this revered goddess is commonly regarded a Virgin Mary-like figure who represents the virtues of benevolence and mercy.
Now, with our delicate jade Guan Yin pendant necklace, you can carry an inspiring symbol of this traditional Asian goddess with you almost anywhere.
Made in Taiwan, each pendant is crafted from glazed jade. Natural color and shade variations result in pendants in countless shades of light, dark and medium green. This unique quality means every necklace is a unique item-just right for jewelry lovers looking for a one-of-a-kind piece!
Each small Guan Yin
pendant is attached to a long polyester strap. This dark brown cord also features woven fabric segments accenting a series of tiny jade bead and jade vase decorations.
Admirers of Asian philosophy and history will appreciate the beauty and grace of this unique accessory. The pendant displays the image of the Guan Yin holding a pill in her right hand and a vase in her left. Surrounding her head is a shape reminiscent of the enlightening light said to surround this much-loved goddess.
According to Buddhist tradition, Guan Yin is an enlightened individual who, rather than ascend to the peaceful realms of heaven, chose to stay on earth for the benefit of humanity. First portrayed in her now-recognizable form as a Chinese princess around 700 B.C., Guan Yin originated from the Indian Buddhist tradition. In Sanskrit her name translates to “born of the lotus.”
Our jade pendant necklace is a lovely tribute to Guan Yin and makes a thoughtful gift for birthdays, holidays and other special occasions.
