In Chinese culture, wearing gold jewellery is believed to bring lots of good luck. And when the item includes auspicious symbols in the design, then the luck is multiplied. Wear an auspicious symbol in 18K gold to maximize your good fortune. These specially crafted gifts of gold make excellent statements of our love for those we care about.
In Chinese, the pineapple is known as "Wong Lei", which means "wealth luck comes to you".
