Sterling silver Chinese zodiac charm necklace. Shengxiao, also known in English as the Chinese Zodiac, is similar to Western astrology. It is represented by a circle of 12 animals and is based on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Each calendar year is assigned to a certain animal and its associated attributes according to a 12-year mathematical cycle. The zodiac animals were carefully chosen for their lucky meanings and how they related to ancient Chinese people's daily lives.
