The blue & white diamond shaped pendant is a porcelain bead that I purchased in Shanghai. The necklace combines 2 blue mother of pearl beads, 2 smaller porcelain beads, and howlite stones, and silver-toned spacers. The pendant had a geometric design on both sides (one side has a slight indentation that does not effect the appearance) and the the little porcelain beads have Chinese "good luck" characters and little bats. In China, the pronunciation of "bat" is the same as the "luck" character. The bat symbolizes happiness, good fortune and harmony and frequently appears in many Chinese traditional designs.
The necklace measures about 19 inches (48 cm) and have a 3 inch (7 cm) extension chain.The large porcelain bead measures almost 50mm in length and 35 mm wide.

This necklace is so versatile - it looks great with denim for a casual look as well as adding a touch of sophistication for a dressier look.

The Chinese porcelain beads are reminiscent of the antique dynasty porcelains which are famous throughout the world. The beads have been hand painted with Chinese characters representing longevity, happiness, wealth, love, and good fortune.
The blue & white porcelain became well developed in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), but flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. First natural cobalt was painted on the basic body. Then it would turn blue after being fired at high temperatures. The white glaze covered by a clear glaze highlighted the blue designs. The blue & white porcelain vases, plates, decorative items, and beads are different and unique.
