As you can see the piglet necklace has this character engraved on it: 囍.
This stand for double happiness and is almost exclusively used in weddings.
The gold bangles, however, are also popular to wear during chinese new year, along with jade bangles.
I have a few, not NEARLY as many as the bride lol, but I do like to bust them out during Chinese new year and it is supposed to bring a year of prosperity and good luck!

Chinese people always say that a jade bangle either belongs to you or it doesn't since 3 criteria has to fit: 1) size has to be right (can't resize the bangles!), 2) price has to be right, and 3) you have to like it. My mom has a jade bangle that she got for relatively good value to the quality because it is so small that no one else can fit into it lol so the jeweler couldn't sell it to anyone else. I like it a lot too but sadly this one is in mom's no-touching stash.
