Fret not — there are other ways to bring in extra success, luck and love in the Year of the Pig. Put those trotters down and instead check out these jewellery pieces that will aid your goals this year — no snout in sight.
Gifts Less Ordinary has teamed up with Master SiewLi — a Singapore Fengshui master — to create a collection of pieces aptly called ‘Matrix Fengshui Blessings’. From wish cuffs to leadership rings, the collection aims to aid the wearer’s everyday life and make each day a smooth one. Our favourite has to be the Trinity-Eyed Bangle. The trinity-eye charm bracelet comes in various options including leather, rose gold plated and sterling silver chain bracelets. It is inspired by the harmonious trinity of the physical, emotional and spiritual eyes.
Each charm has been blessed by Master SiewLi, and will enhance the wearer’s aura and well-being while elevating their confidence and attentiveness.

Available at Atelier Swarovski stores, such as at TANGS at Tang Plaza L2.

Chinese legend has it that the money tree can bring fortune, financial success and luck for people, so this money tree charm is a strong symbol of auspiciousness. Bonus? It’s set in 22K yellow gold. So, imagine wearing one of these every day. You’re bound to achieve more than you thought you could, money wise. What is so great about the charm factor is you can wear it in multiple ways too — try hanging it from a gold hoop earring and wear a gold stud in the other ear for a quirky edge.

No auspicious jewellery piece is complete without including something made from jade. Iconic in Chinese culture, jade has become attached to ideals of the soul and immortality, as well as delivering luck and fortune. Beyond that, it’s just a beautiful colour to wear too. These gold encased jade studs are just the thing to buy for your Year of the Pig — they’re minimalist and feminine, adding class to your ensemble.
