The Cycle Starts Anew

Were you, or someone you know, born in the Year of the Rat?

1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008  

People born in the Year of the Rat are characterised by their intelligence and versatility. Quick-witted and resourceful, they adapt to any situation they find themselves in.

The Lunar Year of the Rat is the first sign in the Chinese zodiac as the cycle starts anew in 2020.  Since its launch in 2014, we have celebrated this ancient Chinese custom with each addition to The Shēngxiào Collection – honouring the animals of the lunar calendar in turn. The Rat is now in the spotlight and this is a unique opportunity to celebrate your Chinese zodiac sign.
