I got this for my son's teacher who has two adopted daughters from China. I have ordered jewelry from Overstock before but was BLOWN AWAY by the quality of this piece. The chain was beautiful and the pendant would have cost much more had I bought a similar item at a store (if I could find one!!). It is really a nice piece and I would not hesitate to order more.
I bought this pendant as a gift for my 15 year old daughter as inspiration for her to lead a happy life. She loved it as both a piece of jewelry and for what it represented. My wife, who is Chinese, commented that the character actually meant "double happiness" and was more representative of the "dual happiness" of a couple - married, engaged... That being the case, we decided to interpret it as a father-daughter bond of love and joy.
The description of the item should probably be clarified to represent what the character actualy means and how Chinese culture interprets it.

Many people thought this symbol means love or happiness. Actually, this symbol is only appropriate for one thing, "wedding" or a new marriage.
The symbol is a combination of two "Joy" side by side. It's symbolic of two people joining their lives together and lived happily ever after. You'll see this symbol in red cut out form and placed on doors or walls around the new Chinese couple's home.
Make sure you know the true meaning of this charactor. It's not appropriate for singles or young girls.
I purchased this necklace for a young lady who's getting married this fall.
I have bought a few of these in the past month to give as gifts, and one to keep. It is very delicate, and nice shiny silver. The chain is thin, but not so much that I worry about it breaking soon. As long as it does not start to tarnish in the near future, I will be very pleased with this necklace.
