Kitsune is a fox with supernatural powers, chief among them turning or possessing humans. The legend of Kitsune originated in China and spread to Japan along with literature.
The main legend is that kitsune are messengers of the goddess Inari, who represents fertility and prosperity. At the time of the great famine, the goddess descended from heaven on a snow-white fox and saved the people. It was at that moment that her messengers, the kitsune, came with her. The conclusion is that foxes are unambiguously good and kind creatures.
The goal of a kitsune is to ascend to heaven by becoming a celestial fox, i.e. to be reborn. To do so, one must continually refine one's skills and live a thousand years. A fox needs time and experience to become a human: in 50 years a kitsune can learn to change into a woman, in 100 years into a beautiful girl or a man (which is much rarer).
Once a fox becomes a young beauty, she is able to trick a young man into marrying her.
There is a legend. After becoming a beautiful girl, Kitsune married a man. They lived happily ever after, and even had several children, but one day a pack of dogs surrounds her and she transforms into a fox, revealing her true nature. However, the man still loved the kitsune and let her come overnight. From then on, she would come every night in the guise of a girl and disappear in the morning in the form of a fox. Hence the name kitsune - which in classical Japanese kitsu-ne means 'come and sleep', while ki-tsune means 'always coming'. It is interesting to note that children from such marriages grow up to be strong and often have abilities that are unnatural to humans.

To ensure the longevity of your items
Try to avoid contact with water (especially swimming pools) as this can reduce the lifespan of your jewelry. However, if you do forget to take off your jewelry in the shower, don't worry, just simply dry the jewelry with a cloth so that all moisture is removed. Be careful and avoid exposure to perfumes, hair products, lotions, soaps, oils and household chemicals. Always remove jewelry before exercising or cleaning.
Sterling silver can be cleaned with a sterling silver polishing cloth. Avoid chlorine water and rubbing with paper products, which can scratch the silver. Store pieces in a cool dry place away from light and air to prevent excess tarnishing. We recommend using the sterling silver-specific liquid jewelry cleaner. For pieces containing stones, pearls and crystals, we recommend using the polishing cloth only, as the liquid can damage some stones.
Gold Plated Sterling Silver
Always separate from other jewelry to prevent scratching and remove before showering or cleaning. Polish gently using a yellow gold-specific polishing cloth.
Caring for Plated Jewelry
Due to the nature of plated jewelry, we suggest following these guidelines to maintain your piece.
Scented products such as perfumes, colognes and lotions contain chemicals that can react with plating and discolor or fade jewelry. Body chemistry and moisture can also affect a plated piece – a high skin PH balance will greatly speed up wear on a plated item.
Plated jewelry should never be worn during activities that involve water such as showering or pool/beach activities as chlorine and saltwater will affect the plating. When removing jewelry for these purposes be sure to store it in a dry area. Friction or contact with a hard surface can produce scratches or wear to the piece.
If necessary, use warm water with a mild, fragrance-free soap to clean plated items. Gently pat dry with a clean cotton or microfiber cloth. Most jewelry cleaners contain chemical elements that will slowly wear and fade plating over time.
Following these steps will help ensure the longevity of your jewelry!
