TORI collection takes its name from a Japanese word for birds, graceful creatures, that have always stood for freedom and joy of life. In Japanese, Chinese, and Korean cultures, the crane bird represents good fortune and is believed that when folds an origami crane, one’s wish would come true.
TORI rings, necklaces, and earrings embrace long curved lines and are inspired by a Japanese crane, a bird of immortality, who is believed to bring happiness and smoothness into one’s life.
This red-crowned crane, also called the Japanese crane, is a large East Asian crane among the rarest cranes in the world and is a symbol of luck, longevity, and fidelity. The elements that construct true happiness… Because happiness is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. Nothing is nobler than fidelity.
TORI kollektsioon on inspireeritud õnnekurgedest ehk jaapani kurgedest ning sõna “tori” tähendab jaapani keeles lindu. Jaapanis usutakse, et kured toovad õnne, pikka iga ja heaolu. Vanas-Kreekas ja Roomas peeti kurgi armastuse toojateks ning päikesejumal Heliose lindudeks.
