Chinese Good Luck BraceletThe Chinese character for fish (yu 鱼) is pronounced the same as the Chinese character for "abundance" or "surplus" (yu 余). The fish symbol is, therefore, frequently associated with other symbols and Chinese characters to symbolize the wish for "more" in the sense of "more" good luck, good fortune, long life and children. The fish (yu 鱼) represents "more" (yu 余).
Fish Symbols of AbundanceThis bracelet symbolizes the intention for more abundance, more luck, more happiness and more prosperity.

LUCKY CHARMS by Llewellyn
Almost anything can (and has been) used as a charm. Buttons and coins are good examples. This is because these items are frequently lost and found by others. Anything that you find can be used as a charm. Small objects given to you by others also make good charms, because of the pleasant associations they provide.
Charms were originally spoken or sung. The word charm comes from the French “charme”, which means song. The blessing that a priest gives at the end of a service is an example of this sort of charm. But, gradually, people came to the conclusion that spoken words were ephemeral, while a solid object was permanent. Objects that had special significance – such as a splinter that was believed to be from the cross of Jesus – replaced sung or spoken charms.
Lucky charms are normally carried on the person, but there are exceptions. I knew someone who collected buttons in an old coffee can and whenever she felt she needed a little extra luck, she’d shake that coffee can as vigorously as she could. Charm bracelets allow people to wear a number of charms at the same time.
A 4-Leaf Clover has always been considered a lucky charm as this old Irish rhyme explains:
One leaf is for fame
And one leaf is for wealth
And one is for a faithful lover
And one to bring you glorious health
Are all in the four-leaved clover
