14th Century Chinese revolutionaries are said to have used small cakes to conceal messages about rebellions against the ruling Mongols. What we know as 'Fortune Cookies' originated in the late 19th Century, possibly in Japan, but more likely among various East Asian immigrants in California. The many variations settled into a sweet, flat vanilla cookie folded while still warm around a slip of paper holding a 'fortune': a prediction or personality trait, some lucky numbers, and perhaps a translated phrase in Chinese or Japanese. Symbolically pass along secret messages, wishes of good luck, and your love of late-night takeout food with our miniature silver fortune cookie. Use alone on a delicate chain or beading wire, or group with letters, beads, and other charms for a unique personal message! Comes with a cast-in 2.8mm (1mm inner diameter) jump ring holding a free-swinging 20ga 5mm soldered jump ring. Charm does not open. Stamped 925.
