An early portrait of the old Dowager Consort Kangci, foster mother of Emperor Xianfeng. She hosted the selection of Xianfeng's consorts in 1851, in which Cixi participated as a potential candidate. She supervised the entire process while the emperor himself was not present. Thus, she made every decision on behalf of the emperor. It is widely believed that Cixi made a favourable impression to her on that occasion.

A special necklace for a special occasion. Love that these necklaces are handcrafted and are a one of a kind! The detail in the clasp and the hand painted shard is a work of art.
