Roberto Coin Celebrates the Year of the Pig


Published on February 5, 2019

In honor of the Chinese Lunar New Year, Roberto Coin has designed a necklace that perfectly represents 2019’s Year of the Pig. The twelfth of all zodiac animals, those born in the Year of the Pig are thought to have wonderful personalities in addition to good fortune in life. Positive energy and enthusiasm are key personality traits of a “pig person”.

In Chinese culture, the pig is actually a symbol of wealth – which could explain why “piggy banks” are modeled after the peachy, chubby animal. This is not to say that pigs spend their wealthy frivolously. Although they enjoy the finer things in life, they are thoughtful about what they buy.

So it should come as no surprise that, Roberto Coin’s latest jewelry ode to the Year of the Pig is a small, spherical 18-karat rose gold replica of a piggy bank. Designed as a pendant and meant to hang around your neck, this is the perfect piece for those born in the Year of the Pig:  a representation of the material wealth for which they are so known.
