Jade has long been held up as an elegant source of raw materials for craftsmen to carve beautiful art pieces out of. In ancient China, jade
is held to be of higher value than even gold and diamond. The perfect jade, as the old Chinese saying goes, is priceless. Because of their smooth texture, and their translucent quality that seems to both hide and seep light, it is not hard to see why jade is held to be so precious in Chinese culture.
Made in Taiwan, this jade peanut lucky charm showcases a jade pendant shaped like a peanut and three jade beads strung together by a series of delicate Chinese knots. Originally a form of folk art that began in the Tang and Song dynasties, Chinese knots increased in both popularity and complexity, and is widely popular today as both a decorative motif and an art form.
Requiring nothing more than a pair of hands and some strings, Chinese knots are extremely creative, and a wide variety of knots with intricate designs can be formed simply by knotting the strings in patterned ways.
The peanut, although unexceptional in appearance is an auspicious symbol in Chinese culture. Because of the sound of its name that symbolizes both flowers and growth, peanuts carry this meaning of flourish and growth. Beyond that, peanuts also carry the additional meaning of fertility.
This jade peanut lucky charm carries this auspicious meaning and can be hung on bag, cell phones, and car mirrors. It will usher in good fortune, wherever you are.
Handcrafted from various jade stones, every lucky charm will differ in looks. Jade lucky charms
should also be handled with care. Jade beads are fragile.
