A pair of phoenixes (bonghwang) with fully-opened wings and tail face each other embracing traditional Yin Yang symbol. The phoenix (bonghwang), along with the dragon, is the symbol of an emperor and is believed to herald a time of peace and prosperity.
The embossed pattern on the backside and inside surface, which helps prevent slipping, adds beautiful panache to this card holder.

Mens Tie Clip and Cufflinks Set with Mother of Pearl Lotus Blossom Design
Traditional elegance of mother of pearl lotus blossom design is expressed in perfect harmony with modern beauty from metal on this stylish men's tie clip and cufflinks, adding refinement to men's formalwear.
The design of the lotus, a symbol of Buddha's seat as well as the Western Paradise where Buddha resides, was used extensively for architecture, houseware and personal ornaments. As it is a plant that bears flowers and fruit at the same time, it was considered a very auspicious symbol.
Unlike other machine-cut printed mother of pearl designs, the mother of pearl designs on this unique tie clip and cufflinks, which are delicately jigsaw-cut by hands, are individually inlaid by our skilled artisan as shown in the picture.
Made in Korea.
