Bi discs have been found in the tombs of ancient Chinese emperors and aristocrats, although their function and significance remain unknown. Shaping this hard stone takes considerable skill. An artisan patiently rubs the surface with sand to give the stone its soft, satiny appearance, a subtle glow completely different from the polished gloss of machine-finished jades. This small bi disc was likely once incorporated into an individual's attire as a charm hanging from a pocket toggle or a piece of jewelry.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
