"Eye-catching" doesn't begin to cover it. I took this photo because it boggled my mind that anyone would be willing to wear the pigs. But I'm told that pigs are/were auspicious for weddings as they have large litters (check out the piglets dangling at the bottom). How that sits with China's current overpopulation and one-child-per-family is open to debate, but I saw that particular piece of jewelry for sale in multiple store windows in Hong Kong.
