HISTORY & FACTS: 

Chinese Amulets are often given as gifts, symbols of good wishes.

  • During the Warring States period, Qin and Han Dynasties, Yuhuang (narrow arc) and Yubi (flat round jade with holes in the center) were connected with silk threads to form a group of miscellaneous pendants, which were used to highlight the magnificence and majesty of the wearer.
  • After the Wei and Jin Dynasties: men often wear simple jade pendants, while women wear miscellaneous pendants for a long time, usually tied on their belts.
  • Qing Dynasty: jade pendant can also be used as a necklace.

Chinese love of jade by comparing its qualities to the virtues of a gentleman, “esteemed by all under the Sun.” Xu Shen, an ancient Han scholar, listed the five virtues of jade as “charity, rectitude, wisdom, courage, and equity.”
