    Hi all!

    I need help identifying this pendant. I have no idea what the words or phrase on the one side mean and hope someone can read it.

    This pendant came from a trusted friend that asked me to sell it for her but I won't do that until I know what and how old it is.

    I know it's Jade and the bale is stamped 18K.
    It weighs 46.3g, measures 2 5/8" x 1/8" thick.

    Is this the Phoenix Dragon on one side? It's got the 3 opals, the top one is chipped and I am not positive if the red stone is an actual ruby.

    Thank you for any help you can offer!

      Yes, the tailfeathers are typical for how Chinese depict a phoenix.

      Hi noob, thanks. That's what I thought too. I wish I had an idea how old this is. The lady that owned this was my friends aunt and my guess is that it's at least 30 years old, but we have no idea if she received or purchased it new.

      Maybe something we'll never know! Thanks for your comment!

      In the Chinese art of placement, known as feng shui, the phoenix figures prominently, representing the south point of the compass, for south was considered the ideal way for one's house to face. In The Feng Shui Handbook, Master Lam Kam Chuen writes: A mythical bird that never dies, the phoenix flies far ahead to the front, always scanning the landscape and distant space. It represents our capacity for vision, for collecting sensory information about our environment and the events unfolding within it. The phoenix, with its great beauty, creates intense excitement and deathless inspiration. The phoenix was also used to mark the location where treasure was buried.

      The right to wear jewellery depicting the phoenix was reserved for important people, a phoenix design showed the wearer as a person of high moral values. T'ang dynasty gold phoenix hair ornaments lent the wearer the protection and majesty of the bird.
