This necklace is made of a silver colored chain with small silver colored beads that are engraved. There are 5 gold colored Pa Kuas with the Yin/Yang symbol the middle of them. The symbols represent the Eight Life Aspirations of recognition/fame, marriage, luck of children, mentoring, career prospects, education, family relationships/health, and wealth/prosperity. Each of these symbols are in harmony with each other and are very complimentary.
The chain is 16" long in the open position. (not clasped) It also has expansion capabilities of 2.5 more inches and has a lobster claw clasp. It is a very delicate chain and should be handled with great care to keep it from breaking.
