Heart Xin Sterling Silver Dainty Earrings

There is no exact translation but In Chinese philosophy, xin can refer to one's "disposition" or "feelings" or to one's confidence or trust in something or someone, a symbol found on the silver designer earrings of Laurel Elliott's women's jewelry collection. Literally, xin refers to the physical heart, though it is sometimes translated as "mind" as the ancient Chinese believed the heart was the center of human cognition. For this reason, it is also sometimes translated as "heart-mind". It also has a connotation of intention. Xunzi, an important early Confucian thinker, considered xin as something to be cultivated during one's life.

Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
