Flat carved disks called bi have been found in China dating back to the Neolithic period. They’re believed to symbolize a connection with the heavens, and they symbolized high rank. More recently, the design on the reverse of the medals given at the 2008 Beijing Olympics was based on bi disks. Here bi disks of smooth black onyx are paired with faceted carnelian and linked with silver-plated wires.


Handcrafted in China. Onyx and carnelian with silver-plated wire. 41 1/2"L.

      Comments about Carnelian and Onyx Chinese Bi Necklace:

      I liked the colors and the style shown in the catalog picture. However when I actually saw this necklace I was very disappointed in the quality and workmanship. I wish they had used little brass rings or something else to connect the stones instead of crudely twisted wire which is sharp and could snag on clothing. It is very cheaply made. Definitely not worth the money at all. I returned it.

      A really beautiful necklace!

      Comments about Carnelian and Onyx Chinese Bi Necklace:

      The photo does not do this necklace justice! What look like simply orange beads are actually a wide range of multi-colored stones that make this piece a multi-dimensional pallet of colors.
