Stenzhorn’s Noble Ones collection is inspired by the ancient Chinese symbols for the four seasons. Often called the Four Gentlemen, the seasons are depicted as flowers: an orchid for spring, bamboo for summer, chrysanthemum for autumn, and plum blossom for winter.
In Chinese culture, the natural character of these plants reflects human virtues. This symbolic tale has been a source of inspiration since the times of the Song Dynasty to poets and painters, as they express purity, nobility, elegance, strength and love.
This high jewellery collection features three unique colliers that represent plum blossom, wild orchid and chrysanthemum. Bamboo, fourth of the gentlemen flowers, is here represented as the carrying structure for the three necklaces.
