      Peapod is one of the traditional carving motifs in Chinese culture with connotations of abundance and fertility. Bursting with seeds enveloped by a plump outline, it serves to delight as a spirited symbol of youth and growth, a reason why children are often gifted with jadeite peapod pendants. This particular peapod with three round and succulent seeds also conveys the meaning that ‘good things come in threes’. As the Latin phrase ‘omne trium perfectum’ goes, everything that comes in three is perfect, so is the auspiciousness represented by this peapod pendant.
