King Fook Jewellery presents the latest Gourd 999.9 Chuk Kam Collection, conveying warmth and heartfelt blessings

 

The curvy Gourd, or “Hulu” in Chinese transliteration, is an auspicious symbol with a multitude of good meanings in the Chinese culture. Rhyming well with “Fulu”, “Hulu” is a token of blessings and prosperity. It is also an amulet that one can both wear as an accessory or use as home decoration to seek luck and avoid calamity. In addition, it represents health, longevity as well as plenty of offsprings. In traditional Chinese wedding, the nuptial cups are made by splitting a gourd into two identical halves, symbolizing happiness and togetherness. As such, gold gourd has always been a perfect gift in various celebratory occasions in Chinese culture. Following the footsteps of its sought-after predecessors, King Fook Jewellery’s latest Gourd 999.9 Chuk Kam Collection re-interprets the classic motif of Hulu into gold jewellery in contemporary style. 

 

 

The latest Gourd Collection comprises five models made with excellent craftsmanship. Their surfaces are meticulously finished to give a glittering sandy texture, which alternates with mirror-polished edges and lines to create an eye-pleasing interplay of light and texture.

Measuring 7 inches long, one of the Gourd Collection 999.9 Chuk Kam bracelets consists of a string of five gourd charms. The design draws its inspiration from the tradition of hanging five natural gourds under the beam with a red string, which is believed to bring “a quintuple of auspiciousness” to the family. Besides, for gourd vines are fast-growing and fruitful, they are featured in the midsection of the charms as a token of fertility, bringing yet another tuple of auspiciousness to the owner.

With a pair of gourd charms, the bracelet not only represents the wish of “good things come in pairs”, but also an auspicious accessory that brings protection and wellness to the baby’s body and mind. Set at different angles, the two gourd charms, together with a pair of mobile 999.9 Chuk Kam beads, look cute and cheerful.

On the Chuk Kam earrings and pendant, the gourds, just like those on the bracelet, are decorated with vines as a blessing of numerous posterities. They are further embellished with delicate leaves as well. Adopting a hollow design, the pendant features a smooth and sleek profile that matches well with both celebratory attire and everyday wear. The earrings, on the other hand, is solid in design to echo with the round and full body of a natural gourd and also to symbolize blessings of happiness and prosperity.

The Gourd Collection also boasts a 999.9 Chuk Kam pendant that is full-figured, signifying full of blessings. The glittering sandy surfaces and the mirror-polished lines form stripes that decorate the body of the pendant - a vivid demonstration of exquisite craftsmanship. The mirror-polished vines not only outline the gourd’s contour, but also carry deep cultural meanings and blessings. From the front, the upper half of the vines has taken the shape of a peach, which represents longevity in Chinese myth; while the lower half is a combination of “Yuanbao” (gold ingots in Imperial China) and “Ruyi” (a traditional Chinese decorative talisman) motifs, carrying the wishes of good wealth and fortune.


 

 

A perfect marriage of modern aesthetics and Chinese tradition, King Fook Jewellery’s new Gourd 999.9 Chuk Kam Collection is uniquely stylish and elegant. As an embodiment of multiple auspicious wishes, the collection is no doubt the best gifting option bringing heartfelt blessings to beloved friends and family in all kinds of celebratory occasions.
