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

8 is also an auspicious number for Chinese philosophies because
there are 8 trigrams that make up the 64 (8 times 8) Hexagrams of the

if you want Chinese customers put 888 in your business name. A bank
in Australia had 888 investment accounts the Chinese loved them. With
pronunciation of 'Ba' in Chinese, no. 8 sounds similar to the word
'Fa', which means to make a fortune. Red and yellow are also Chinese
