10 Red & Gold Jewelry Pieces To Help You Tap Into The Lunar New Year Spirit

Shop all the items, ahead.

Originally Published: 

The colors red and gold are symbolic for Lunar New Year, which falls on Feb. 1 this year. The holiday celebrates the beginning of a new year in accordance to the lunar calendar.

In Chinese culture, red symbolizes fire (which scares away bad spirits), joy, beauty, and good fortune. Brides wear red on their wedding day as the start of a happy new beginning,” jewelry designer Yi Guo tells TZR. “[Meanwhile] gold, in Buddhism, represents purity completeness, happiness, and freedom. The combination of red and gold is the most iconic in Chinese culture.

A good way to incorporate these colors into your Lunar New Year outfit is by wearing red and gold jewelry. Ahead, shop pieces that’ll add a festive feel to any ensemble. If you don’t celebrate the holiday, you can still wear the eye-catching baubles with any outfit.
