About Yin Yang

Black and white, up and down, male and female; the Yin Yang is a symbol of Confucian philosophy's conceptualization of the balancing forces of the philosophical and mystical world. The symbol, consisting of two mated teardrops of black and white, each marked with a single circle of the other's color, is one of the most recognizable in the world of religious and philosophical iconography. A Yin Yang necklace can be a statement of belief in the tenets of Confucianism or a beautiful accessory that honors the contributions of Chinese thinkers to the world's philosophical systems. You can buy such a necklace, or a Yin Yang ring, from reliable vendors on eBay, where you can find a variety of these pieces. The Yin Yang symbolizes strength, peace, balance, love, and devotion. It communicates to the world that the wearer wishes to live a life of positive change, following an even-handed path to bring about good developments and working for justice.
