Today I want to tell you about a stone absolutely fit in any season: Jade, which in different cultures has symbolized the highest step of preciousness, even more than Gold or diamonds!
That must be why jade jewelry are always peeped in the walkways of the star? No point in denying it, is tres chic to wear.
Jade between history and properties
Jade is among the hardest materials found in nature (think that was used to produce weapons in pre-Columbian America), is a very ancient stone which dates back some 7000 years ago and have always been attributed great power “magic”.
Actually the term “Jade” is not quite correct (although in common usage, so I adjust myself) because this stone is mineralogicamente a nephrite or Jadeite, 2 separate stones (although he has turned out only after 1800) but with a very similar appearance and characteristics.
“Historical” is Jade nephritis and was used in China to make Tomb jewelry to ensure the afterlife. Since the mid ‘ 700 ethnic Chinese nephritis has been mostly replaced by Jadeite, originating from Burma.
They loved the ancient Maya, but also the Chinese Empire, famous for its art in jade carving. Even today, among the Chinese is considered a lucky amulet and is donated to a child to protect him and wish prosperity.
In Europe the green jade only arrived after 1500, when the Spanish conquered the Central America and discovered the “pedra de ijada,” the stone of the hips: local populations the attributed a beneficial power on the loins and kidneys and this was much appreciated as much finely.
Jade has always been recognised as calming, relaxing and soothing properties and is considered to be the stone of doctors, because it helps to calm the heart and find the right sorry for making the right decisions.
How to recognize the true jade
To recognize the true jade you must remember that:
- it’stranslucent and opaque.
- 2. If you touch itlooks like silk.
- Canpresent red or yellow spots caused by corrosion caused by ferrite (abundant in Himalayan rivers) or decomposition gases (produced in the tombs where the Jade was at least 1000 years), which obviously don’t have sharp edges like those caused artificially;
- when hit by a hard objectproduces a pleasant sound, think jade plates were used in antiquity as bells!
The colors of jade
Jade can have different colours: nephritis, for example, can be white, yellow, dark green, black, Brown or red. Jadeite may have the same colours of nephritis and is very rare in the colors lavender, pink, golden yellow, gray or bluish. Only the Imperial jade is emerald green.
On the market today are other minerals sold under the name of jade, as the serpentine, which not only looks the same, but it is also extracted from the same giadaite and deposits of nephritis, although it is more malleable and less resistant.
The value of a jade can vary greatly depending on the color, the type of mineral and processing. Besides, some pieces may take different values depending on the culture of origin of those judges.
Jewelry with jade
But let’s get to your jewelry: jade is brilliant and is mounted with the wonderful very refined even pairing it with the Black Onyx, pearls, coral , or rubies .
I understand, you want some example.
Vhernier has 3 variants from the line very clean: elliptical jade in the ring Fuseau in white gold with diamonds (5.52 ct.) and the earrings Fuseau; round jade inthe Cardinal’s ring in rose gold and earrings Giottino; and the spherical jade in the Sun King ring in rose gold.
Pasquale Bruni instead, inspired by the floral motif in his collection Wreath and pull the green jade green Topaz and orange to bright carnelian, to create earrings, necklaceand girogola by very bold colours.
Silvia Kelly finally opts for the Burmese jade engraved toward the diamonds and rubies in some interesting creations in gold: the Cattleya, ring and pendant necklace Jade, thePhoenix and the ring bracelet Lotus.
One last interesting fact: Confucius believed that jade had 11 virtues, including benevolence (is sweet and shiny at touch), fidelity (non-irritating skin ever), education and sincerity (a flaw in giada never hides). And in Confucian culture, a man had to define his manners and conduct in accordance with the virtues of jade.
At this point we just have to trust in Confucian wisdom for a man-jade, isn’t it??
