So there I was at The Majestic Hotel a couple of weeks back where Poh Kong, Malaysia’s leading jewellery brand unveiled its highly awaited ‘Auspicious Collection’ and showcased the signature ‘Happy Love’ at an exclusive event themed, ‘Spring Date with Poh Kong’. I haven't been to many jewellery events, so it was rather exciting to be seated there that afternoon.

The circular pendant in this collection that depicts contentment features a pair of dragon and phoenix dancing gracefully around the center “Double Happiness” motif, signifying bliss. The majesty of the dragon and the grace of the phoenix are a perfect match that lies among the “Auspicious Clouds” surrounded by the Great Wall, bringing the couple a blessed and abiding marriage. This pendant is a result of at least 10 years of professional carving experience, which can be seen through the meticulous craftsmanship of the dragon and the phoenix. The pendants come in large, medium, and small sizes which are suitable for both genders.
Under the same collection, you can find a series that features the phoenix, which includes necklace, earrings, and bangle. The phoenix is the king of all birds, symbolising wealth and comes with the parents’ infinite blessings, in hopes of their daughter marrying well and the daughter-in-law bringing prosperity to the family, therefore making it the ideal gift for the bride. The phoenix soars elegantly, with its delicate feathers connecting as the chain of the necklace. The elegant phoenix feather design can also be seen on the rings and earrings.
