The popular figure known as the Laughing Buddha - named the Budia - is often mistaken for the historical Buddha Siddhartha Gautama. Buddha means enlightened one. In some forms of Taoism Budai is known as a god of happiness and plenty.

In Japan, Budia is referred to as Hotei and is one of the Seven Lucky Gods (Shichi Fukujin). He is almost always shown smiling or laughing, hence his nickname in Chinese, the "Laughing Buddha". This piece is made with cubic zirconia and dyed jade. Real jade available as a custom order.

All BDB jewelry is made from either; 22-24kt Solid Gold, .999 silver, Sterling Silver, Argentium Silver, Platinum, Paladium, Vermeil (18kt Gold Plating) or 22kt Gold Plating. I use real natural gems or cubic zirconia (CZs). No synthetic material is used unless requested. I work primarily in NON-ferrous metals, but I am willing to manufacture in any metal as a custom order. To make my work affordable to everyone, everything is available with #mm CZs as a custom order.

Plated jewelry of any kind should never be worn in the ocean. The reason is because the salt and sand remove the gold from the surface, essentially removing the plating. You can; however, wear it in the shower and most swimming pools.
