Ryokuin Aki Gold Necklace

£95

An absolutely one-of-a-kind piece of precious jewellery, created by the Nozomi Project, Japan.

‘Nozomi’ means ‘hope’ in Japanese. Founded in the wake of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the Nozomi Project is a social enterprise based in Ishinomaki which employs and trains local people in the craft of jewellery making.

Each piece embraces the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi: there is beauty to be found in the broken. Pottery smashed in the earthquake is given a new lease of life, transformed by the artisans into stunning and unique pieces of jewellery.

Designed with a chunky gold cable chain and ornate framed pendant with detailing on the reverse. The chain and pendant are 24k gold plated, the charm is crafted from a fragment of china featuring the bright green ‘ryokuin’ leaves of summer.

Goes with everything from an everyday t-shirt to your favourite evening dress.


Chain length approx. 32 inches plus the charm. Tied with a spring ring clasp so it can be shortened.

Gift wrapped in tissue paper
