Nian has passed, and the people rejoice behind doorways cloaked in red scrolls. Chinese New Year is known as Guo Nian, meaning “Nian has passed.” According to legend, a Taoist monk taught people to hang scrolls of red paper around their doors to scare away a monster called Nian, and the tradition remains today. This pink-gold ring, part of the Dior Dior Dior collection, is centred on a rich ruby — a beautiful and protective amulet for the New Year.
