Chinese dragons have a way of ending up in the most surprising places — fountain pens, neck ties, watches, hat and caps, scarves and even hair sticks. Panda bears and elephants have their own fans as well, of course, and Amazing Grace tries to keep everybody happy. But in the race to accessorize, dragons earn the most mileage points.
As we all know, dragons conquer time and space with amazing ease but unlike most other celebrity creatures, lend their image without requiring product endorsement fees thereby helping keep Amazing Grace dragon watches, for example, as reasonable as they are. Telling time by dragon hours is a great educational opportunity as well since the hours are marked in Chinese characters. What a wonderful gift for a kid studying the language. Chinese character panda watches and watches with mother of pearl faces are equally popular presents in our airport stores in Hong Kong and Singapore .
Dragons also lend their fabulous lines to ball point and fountain pens. Though not well known for penmanship, dragons’ graceful contours draw the envy of calligraphers. Not surprising then to find them on Amazing Grace pens, lending a bit of grandeur to your signature. My choice for an executive gift is a dragon pen in brushed gold or silver with red garnet gemstone eyes.
Amazing Grace equal opportunity Chinese silk neck ties make space for elephants and panda bears but dragons are the most popular choice for power ties, a natural pick for fire-breathing friends or someone born in the year of the dragon. More than just novelty ties, dragon ties help celebrate almost any occasion including green dragon ties for St. Patrick’s Day. Silk ties with Chinese poetry written in calligraphy may require a translator but even without, impress with their elegance.
For supporters of teams with names like Dragons or Tigers, Amazing Grace comes to bat. Mad hatters will be pleased with Chinese calligraphy caps that translate as Dragon or Tiger, caps embroidered with dragon images and calligraphy caps written with Chinese poetry. Soft, cotton knit pullover caps in pastels are themed with the Chinese character for ‘good luck’, choose your colors.
