What is Name on Rice Jewellery?

Name on rice jewellery is based upon the ancient art of rice writing; the art and skill of writing small enough to fit a word or phrase on a single grain of rice. According to ancient legends, the writing on a grain of rice is thought to bring good luck, good fortune and also protection for its recipients. Today rice writing is thought to be one of the many wonders of the world.

The grain of rice is preserved within a glass vial containing oil; other personalised items and colour can also be included. The glass vial complete with silver plated jewellery cap can then be adorned as a Name on Rice necklace, pendant, charm or even a Name on Rice keyring or phone charm.

How is Name on Rice Jewellery Made?

The art of writing on a grain of rice is an ancient tradition that requires great skill and practice to be done well. Using an extremely fine-tipped pen, the artist writes a name or message on a single grain of rice. The grain of rice is then sealed within a glass vial containing preservative oil that also protects and magnifies the grain of rice. To make the Name on Rice jewellery even more personalised, other small trinkets and mementos can also be included within the glass vial such as birth-stones, small flowers, glitter and colourings.

Name on Rice Jewellery - History

The art of writing a name on a grain of rice originated in Ancient Turkey and India where artists who were previously skilled in making miniature paintings decided to turn their skills to making art with their ancient symbol of prosperity...Rice. During this time, people believed that anyone who had their message or name on a grain of rice could become extremely fortunate and prosperous; hence the tradition of giving rice art evolved.

Many years ago a man wrote two hundred letters onto a single grain of rice with a single strand of hair and today this is displayed within an exhibit at a very famous museum in Turkey.

Name on Rice Jewellery - Symbolism

Rice being the staple food in the Far-East clearly associates it with prosperity, fertility and good fortune. It is often said that the more rice one has, the more prosperous you are and in some cultures rice rather than gold is considered a symbol of wealth.

Since ancient times rice has been deeply symbolic of fertility and was often used during rituals as a sign of good luck and prosperity. The symbolic nature of rice led it to be incorporated into jewellery, mainly in the form of good luck pendants and necklaces. The writing of messages and names on a grain of rice further personalises these wishes of good luck to the recipients.
