Rabbit Jewelry: A Sign of Refinement
By Sam Serio
There is a certain delight that comes with the sight of rabbit jewelry.
The motif is cute and cuddly, and the person wearing it may often be seen as fun to be
with, whimsical and affectionate.
In this day and age, a person wearing rabbit jewelry was likely born in
the year of the Rabbit, according to Chinese mythology. Actually, on the subject of the
Chinese calendar, when we get down to technicalities, there is no Year of the Cat: legend
has it that when the Lord Buddha was summoning the animals of the 12 major branches of the
zodiac so he could give them unique talents, the Cat was unable to attend. Due to mix-ups
over the centuries, some people born in the year of the Rabbit believe they were born on
the year of the Cat.
People born in the year of the Rabbit and by extension, those
who wear rabbit jewelry are smart, articulate, talented, virtuous, tactful, and
often sophisticated. They may often not settle for second best, but they are resourceful
enough to whip up the "best" in case nothing in their environment readily
provides it. They are clever in doing business and conscientious at work. However, they
are mostly conventional, stay-at-home types, rarely adventurous and somewhat picky.
Rabbits go well with other introspective stay-at-home types, like the sheep/goat, the pig,
or the dog.
Rabbits are also popular pets in the United States. As rabbits are
often kept in cages until such time as they are required for cuddling and fussing over,
they are very easy to maintain. Also, they are very easy to breed, so if you know how to
take proper care of your pets, you'll have dozens of little furry balls of joy in no time!
Of course, its possible that a person who wears rabbit jewelry
may also just really like rabbits. Whatever the case, wearing rabbit jewelry accentuates
in a person the talents of the Chinese rabbit: resourceful, sensual, crafty, and loving.
