Who knows, red may just be your lucky shade as the fengshui charts foretell.

It’s that time of the year again when some of our favourite stores are festooned in red for the Lunar New Year. As red and zodiac-themed capsule collections contend for a spot in our festive wardrobe, jewellery brands are tempting our purses to complete our look with equally propitious trinkets.

After all, a qipao may look good on you, but a qipao complemented with gold ornaments would look better. On the other hand, if you’re skipping on the pervasive red outfit, at least a couple of red jewellery may help you avoid disapproving glances from conservative relatives. Who knows, red may just be your lucky shade as the fengshui charts foretell.

In any case, we’ve compiled a selection of red and gold jewellery to add some sparkle to your CNY ensembles.
