In Mexico and other Catholic countries, it is customary to gift children a piece of religious jewelry such as a cross necklace, rosary, or a guardian angel necklace, etc. The gift is usually during baptism, when the family celebrates this beautiful and important moment. In Asia, especially Taiwan and Hong Kong, there is an old saying "Wearing gold represents wealth; wearing jade represents safety and peace". Therefore in Asia, jade jewelry became one of the best choices when gifting newborn/children jewelry.
Normally, people would gift something called “Ping An plate“, a very simple design that signifies purity and flawlessness. As the name suggests, the “Ping An plate” means "safety and peace", and it has always been a lucky charm for condensing wishes. Why do people like the Ping An plates so much? There is a deeper meaning behind it:
Ping An, in Mandarin literally means “safety”. Pin An plate, or sometimes in another design looking like a buckle, symbolizes praying for the child to grow up in peace and good health.
Buddhism imparts that to own nothing, is to have everything. As a parent, the deepest hope is often your children’s happiness and freedom from worries.Parents like gifting it to their children, hoping that they will avoid evil and misfortune, hence a protective jewelry.
One of the most beautiful things in the world is to welcome the arrival of a newborn. TheBaby collection enshrines the ethos of the concept of protection jewelry to protect and nurture your child.
