This is a gorgeous necklace featuring a jade pendant carved into the shape of a Ru Yi with a bat.
The Ru Yi is a symbol of authority used by high ranking Chinese officials of ancient times. Wearing a Ruyi necklace is believed to bring authority and promotion luck to those who wish to climb the career ladder.
In traditional China, the bat is a popular auspicious symbol of good luck, prosperity and wealth because the sound for Bats in Chinese, ‘Fuk’ is similar to good fortune and happiness. One can often see symbols of bats on decorative windows, doors and even the floor in old Chinese houses and on the imperial robes of high ranking officials. Wearing a Bat necklace is believed to bring continuous good luck and fortune.
This pendant is strung on tough Chinese silk string. The length of this necklace is adjustable to suit all sizes. (the design of the string may not match exactly the one shown in the photos). Colors are also variant, ranging from completely yellow jade to Fuk Luk Sau jade.
