The carp is considered the most favored of all fish. It symbolizes wealth, abundance, happiness and fertility. In China the carp is symbolic of determination and perseverance. It is believed that the carp can ascend the rapids and waterfalls of the wild Yellow River will eventually become a dragon. The carp also symbolizes success in school or study.

Called the stone of heaven, jade has worn jade for centuries by Chinese royalty. It has been used since the Neolithic times for tools, weaponry, amulets, vases and figurines because of its hardness. It is believed to be a spiritual stone and has been called the jewel of heaven. It represents the five principal virtues: charity, modesty, courage, justice and wisdom. From cloudy white to golden brown, light to dark green, to rare lavender, jade is the most highly prized Asian gemstone. Jade has been regarded as the most precious stone for thousands of years and is treasured for its magical powers. It is believed to protect the wearer and ensure good luck and good health as well as to increase life span, which is why most Asians put a jade bangle on a baby’s arm and wear jade themselves.
