This vintage-looking brass bangle with the most auspicious and popular Chinese Character Fu 福 represent blessings of prosperity, good fortune and happiness.
Wearing a charm with the Fu character is a powerful good luck symbol
Fu is great to use as an amulet. It has been used as a talisman since ancient times. The ideogram of Fu shows God’s blessing of the farmland. Many Chinese shops and restaurants add the word Fu to their shop's name. This is done to bring good luck to the business.
It is most popularly used during the Chinese New Year celebrations, hung upside down on the entrances of many Chinese homes. Hung this way, the character Fu literally means “good luck arrives” because the words “upside-down” and “to arrive” are almost perfectly homophonous or “they sound the same” in nearly all forms of Chinese.
Hanging the symbol upside down, therefore, has come to mean the household’s wish for good luck, happiness, and prosperity in the coming New Year.
