This lovely pendant features delicate eye-shaped jade crystals linked with silver clasped to form the auspicious number eight. The centers of the double circles contain two silver Chinese characters “Ji Xiang” which means auspiciousness. The charming combination of shiny silver and translucent green is indeed a sight for sore eyes – subtly elegant and exquisite!
The number 8 is widely regarded as a universally lucky number and is believed to be extremely auspicious in Feng Shui applications. It has long been revered by the Chinese as it signifies endless or continuous prosperity. This belief is closely associated with the sound of 8, “Fatt”, which means Prosperity and Abundance. Also, on its side, figure 8 looks like the universal symbol of Infinity. Therefore, putting these two together, we have the symbolic meaning of “Endless Prosperity”. What makes the number 8 even more auspicious is that we are now in the 20-year cycle of the number 8. This cycle began in the lunar year of 2004 and will run through 2024.
Jade or ‘yu’ in Chinese is also known as the “Stone of Heaven”. Jade is a desired stone prized for thousands of years in China for its purity, serenity, protective powers, and healing qualities. It is considered the health, wealth, and longevity stone used also for courage, wisdom, justice, mercy, emotional balance, stamina, love, fidelity, humility, generosity, peace, and harmony. Associated with the heart chakra, Jade increases love. It is also said to stimulate creativity and mental agility, and attract good luck and enhance one’s health. It also has a detoxifying effect on the body by stimulating the kidneys. Jade symbolizes renewal. It is considered a lucky stone and frequently worn as an amulet.
Besides being an elegant accessory, the Prosperity and Auspiciousness Number Eight Jade Pendant is a Feng Shui lucky charm with all the protection and blessings associated with silver, jade, and the number eight symbol.
