While the Hanzi, the writing system used for Chinese, will seem complex from a foreign perspective, it is actually one of the most adaptable systems in our world.

The world is a complex place struggling to find order. Major historical milestones are set whenever the world agrees to abide by a standard system.

Science is able to move forward because of the Système international, where the world agreed on our fundamental units of measurement.

Humanity is more relaxed knowing that the world agreed on a fundamental standard on how to respect each other—when the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Slowly, different cultures are able to understand each other. But there's one bulwark: Language.

There are roughly 6,500 languages in the world today. For lesser-spoken languages, the process of consolidating all mediums of communication is phasing them out. But for giant monoliths such as English, Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese, killing a language off isn't a viable option.

Yet, the need to consolidate is important. Differences in language create costly barriers to the inter-cultural flow of information.

Just like the Arabic and Hebrew writing systems, Hanzi is written from the right-to-left. But unlike Arabic and Hebrew, Hanzi is able to merge with most of the world—be understood in a left-to-right writing system.

But even more so, Hanzi romanized itself that made it easier for Hanzi writers to understand Latin letters and to serve as a gateway for the world to understand Hanzi.

Aurum Speak believes that beauty of a language is not exclusive to the musicality and poetry of its speech, but also its ability to communicate with those who do not understand it.

If as one people, speaking the same language, they have begun to [build this tower], then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other. The Tower of Babel, Genesis 11:6 (New International Version)

The width and thickness of this bracelet measures at 3mm. The available engraved Hanzi characters are:
