There is no exact translation but In Chinese philosophy, xin can refer to one's "disposition" or "feelings" or to one's confidence or trust in something or someone. Literally, xin refers to the physical heart, though it is sometimes translated as "mind" as the ancient Chinese believed the heart was the center of human cognition. For this reason, it is also sometimes translated as "heart-mind". It also has a connotation of intention. Xunzi, an important early Confucian thinker, considered xin as something to be cultivated during one's life.
Engraved with the Chinese symbol for 'Heart' on the front and the phonetic pronunciation 'Xin' on the back. Sterling Silver, Earrings: 3/8" wide
