I am Asian and I believe in the balance of energies, feng shui and charms. I do not surround the house with Chinese idols and lucky charms but I wear charmed jewelries from time to time. My favorite piece is a jade bracelet that I had as a gift from a friend. I don't know if it had some good effect on me but I still wear it. In Asian culture, jade is believed to protect the body, to drive away evil spirits, to heal sickness, and to help solve problems. If you somehow believe in the power of stones and charms, I find this jade necklace with lizard design cute. This is available at Ice for $225.
