Soufeel's Chinese Zodiac Ox Charm is as strong as it is small! In Chinese astrology, your Sheng Xiao or birth sign is determined by the year rather than the month you are born. Like the western zodiac, there are twelve signs with each one named after an animal. The Ox is the second and is associated most recently with the years 1973, 1985, 1997 and 2009. For the Chinese, the Ox is a symbol of loyalty, honesty and persistence. Made from 925 sterling silver, this Chinese Zodiac Ox Charm from Soufeel embodies these qualities with meticulous attention to detail and a lovely appearance. Who wouldn't warm to this smiling creature with its big eyes and friendly demeanour? Those born in the Year of the Ox will love this bovine charm.
