Just designed a ‘surprise’ ring for a client, his wife is Chinese. I
suggested that he should make the ring in 18kt. not 14kt. Why so?
The word ‘four’ sounds very much the pronounced word “death”.
In fact, no Chinese person will buy a house, licence plate or
telephone number with a “4” in it. It is said, in their "Fueng Shui"
religion/lifestyle, number 4 will bring only bad luck! But on the
other hand, “8” as in 18 karat is totally acceptable & will bring
that person riches and of course “very good luck”.
We have a section in our Ontario province called “Richmond Hill” and
it is almost populated with Oriental citizens. See the word “Rich”?
Always keep this essay in your mind & remember it for the future
In British Columbia, Canada there is a city called “Richmond”.
Orientals gravitate to that city as well, just for this name!!! Also
my Casino-disk has only.08 point stones in it & no where will there
be a “4” in it’s processing/purchasing of diamonds! Gerry Lewy
