When it comes to jade jewelry, there's one symbol that holds a special place in my heart — Fubei. Known as "fortune at hand" or "fortune to the heart," is a common carving style often seen in jade jewelry. Made with genuine Burmese jadeite jade. Its simple, round, and elegant design reflects the Chinese pursuit of harmony, happiness, and family reunion. 

Pictured below, typically, it features a bat with spread wings flying in the clouds or an upside-down bat, with a lucky pattern composed of copper coins below. In ancient China, bats symbolized longevity, blessings, auspiciousness, and happiness, with the upside-down bat suggesting "fortune arriving." Combined with "auspicious clouds," it signifies "divine blessings." Referred to as "Fubai," it also symbolizes fortune reaching the heart and prosperity for generations, representing the fusion of fortune and wealth.


these are carved in jadeite and also common in Hetian nephrite jade, each telling a story of prosperity and fortune. At the heart of it all are the enchanting bats, gracefully depicted in flight amidst celestial clouds or in a poised, inverted stance.

With Fubei by your side, you carry with you the promise of prosperity and good fortune, symbolized by the graceful bats and auspicious motifs that adorn each piece. Whether gifted to a loved one or cherished as a personal talisman, Fubei jade jewelry serves as a tangible reminder of the enduring spirit of Chinese culture and the boundless possibilities that await.
