The healing properties of traditional Chinese medicine meet wearable objets d’art in the creations of Yun Boutique. The New York-based handmade jewellery boutique draws on ancient Chinese meditation and spiritual practices to produce pieces that are more than pretty accessories, but also instill health, wellness, and a sense of cosmic harmony within the wearer.

The Protective Auspicious Clouds Container Pendant Necklace is said to represent the connection between humanity and the divine, symbolized by the ancient cloud motif carved in the gold-plated hollow pendant. The necklace features pure white Tridacna beads, the whitest natural gemstone on earth, said to calm the spirit and clear the mind, and is dotted with beads of brilliant blue lapis lazuli and soothing turquoise.

Necklace details

And the golden pendant holds something magical: hidden inside it are herbal beads from an ancient Chinese recipe.

Aromatherapy has a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine to fight infections and diseases, with microscopic particles of scent entering the neurological and circulatory systems with each inhale. The necklace’s aromatic bead contains six kinds of herbs: Tetradium ruticarpum, Radix Bupleuri, Incised Notopterygium, Rhubarb, Atractylodes lancea, Asarum sieboldii, selected by a traditional Chinese physician and handmade in Taiwan.

The herbs’ unique properties can help improve immunity and reduce the risk of infection, imbuing the wearer with a sense of peace and hope during these worrying times.
