This is a beautiful necklace featuring a jade pendant carved into the symbol of a bat, with an auspicious coin. The necklace is accented with decorative beads, and is fully adjustable.
In traditional China, the bat is a popular auspicious symbol of good luck and wealth because the sound for "Bats" in Chinese, "Fuk" is similar to good fortune and happiness. During the days of the Manchu emperors, bats were the most popular symbol after the dragon, being embroidered in imperial robes for high ranking officials and for the emperor. The designs were usually combined with other symbols of longevity such as crane birds for long life and happiness.
JADE, or ‘yu’ in Chinese is also known as the Stone of Heaven. Comes in many fine shades of green, but also in shades of white, black, grey, orange, yellow and violet tones, Jade is a desired stone prized for thousands of year in China for its protective powers and healing qualities. It is also said to stimulate creativity and mental agility, and enhance one’s health.
Wear the Jade Bat with Coin Necklace to invite good fortune, wealth and health.
