The two Pixiu are in 24k pure gold (足金). They are hollow. However, as they are to be worn as bracelet which is susceptible to external pressures, greater amount of gold is used to make them thicker. Hence, they will not go out of shape easily due to the softness of pure gold. In addition, the workmanship is exquisite.
Pixiu is a Chinese mythical creature which is considered to be a very powerful protector. The four Chinese characters under the feet are 招财纳福.
Dimensions of pixiu: 13mm x 6.5mm x 5.5mm
The bracelets are in garnet and smoky quartz.
Love the combination of garnet/ smoky quartz beads with the gold pixiu. Love that they customized the bracelet for me. Buying experience was easy and they communicated well to all my questions.
