To the Chinese, jade can bring about health, peace and good fortune, depending on the design. Carrying a jade during your stay in China can only help your fortunes.

 

In the south building of Xidan Department Store lies the Hengchang Jewelry Outlet, the most famous brand for jewelry in Beijing. You should have no problem finding the glittering, translucent jadeite pendants in the showcases. Their patterns mainly take on two forms: Guanyin, the goddess of mercy, and Pi Xiu, animals of the gods in ancient Chinese legends.

 

As the story goes, Pi is male, and Xiu is female. Both have a dragon¡¯s head, a deer¡¯s ears, a goat¡¯s horns, a lion¡¯s body, a phoenix¡¯s tail, a tiger¡¯s paws, and a pair of wings. They can fly above clouds, and are very brave and mighty. Pi can store wealth, while Xiu can conquer evils. In traditional Chinese society, people thought of Pi and Xiu as fortunate animals that absorb wealth and conquer demons for their owner.

 

So to ward off evil and increase your wealth, ask for a Pi Xiu pendant. Prices vary according to jadeite¡¯s quality. A smaller white pendant costs RMB 700, while another greenish black one of the same size costs RMB 2000.
