Wondering if anyone will shed some light on the origination and possible characters on the front of this two and three eighths inches or six centimeters wide pendant. The only markings are sterling and 950.
The character in Chinese is 福 and yes it does mean happiness or blessings. There are multiple meanings. Some characters, like this one, exist in both Chinese and Japanese. It has a similar meaning in Japanese but I'm not familiar with the cultural context. 福 in Chinese is a very common character found in posters and door signs.
