Good Fortune: Glass Calligraphy Pendant
A popular symbol displayed on doorways during Chinese New Year. It can be translated as good fortune, prosperity, or fulfillment. The custom of displaying the symbol during New Year started in 256BCE during the Zhou Dynasty. Placing the symbol at your doorway kept poverty away from your home.
Approximately 1" square metal bezel with diamond-shaped glass front. The glass magnifies the calligraphy image slightly and the bezel's finish and thick casting gives it a vintage look. Pendant comes with an 18" length black leather cord necklace with end cap, lobster clasp, and a 2" adjustable chain extender (18"- 20"). Silk jewelry gift pouch included (random colors).
