"Strong Love" Cartouche

January 2011
Sterling silver

The characters 情比金堅 (qīngbĭjīnjiān) in this traditional Chinese saying literally translate to "love is stronger than gold"—although in ancient Chinese, the character for gold could mean any precious metal and was also frequently used to mean money. This elegant cartouche's gently convex form is is the perfect gift to express your feelings to your loved one.
