Celebrate The Dragon Boat Festival with Dragon Jewelry from Yun Boutique

As the warm winds of early summer begin to stir, we find ourselves amidst the vibrant celebrations of the Dragon Boat Festival, a time-honored cultural gem in the tapestry of Chinese tradition. Held on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, this festival, also known as Duanwu, is steeped in legend and communal spirit. It commemorates the life and heroic demise of Qu Yuan, an ancient Chinese poet and statesman.

Amidst the dragon boat races and the delightful scent of zongzi, there's a profound sense of history and vitality that fills the air. In keeping with this spirit, Yun Boutique is proud to present our exclusive Dragon Jewelry Collection, a tribute to the mythical creature that symbolizes power, strength, and good fortune in Chinese culture.

The Legend of the Dragon Boat Festival

The Dragon Boat Festival's origins are often linked to the poignant story of Qu Yuan, who drowned himself in a river as a protest against the corruption that led to his nation's decline. Local villagers, who admired him, raced out in their boats to save him or at least retrieve his body. This act of desperation has since transformed into the dragon boat races witnessed today. The paddling of the boats is said to represent the villagers’ effort to save Qu Yuan, while the zongzi are thrown into the water to protect his body from being eaten by fish.

Yun Boutique's Dragon Jewelry Collection

Aligning with the themes of strength and protection, our Dragon Jewelry Collection captures the essence of the dragon's revered symbolism in Chinese mythology. Each piece is crafted with the utmost care, incorporating elements of traditional Chinese art with contemporary design aesthetics.

Dragon Princess Necklace and Earrings Set
  • The Dragon Princess Set: This set is inspired by the compassion of a dragon princess in an ancient Chinese fairytale. In the story, even after her divine powers were stolen by evil dragons, she didn't lose her compassion for those who were powerless and in suffering.

This design was originally customized as a school day gift for a loving mother to give to her daughter. It later became part of the Yun Boutique collection.

  • Gold Dragon Princess Set: Handmade necklace and earrings set with natural red coral and waterfall tassels in sterling silver. Inspired by ancient Chinese myth of divine dragon princess.

  • Dragon Pendant Necklace: An intricate dragon pendant wire wrapped on a solid tarnish resistant titanium steel chain. According to Buddhist scripts, dragon is one of the divine guardians for buddha. Dragon is also a symbol of royal house in ancient China.
