hand-crafted jewelry from beautiful Bonny Doon

Green Jade Toggle Necklace


Jade has a four thousand year history in China and is a part of all walks of life. These highly polished 12 millimeter gemstone beads have a deep green color and a luster unique to jade from the orient. I've enhanced this beauty with tiny sterling balls and a Bali Toggle clasp.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The necklace is 18 1/2 inches long.

Note: Jade is listed as the mystical birthstone for the month of March and the birthstone for the Sun Sign Virgo. Jade is the term applied to forms of jadeite and nephrite. These minerals are similar in appearance and a distinction between the two often was not made. But, because of its more intense color and translucency, jadeite now brings higher prices and is thought to be the true jade.

The most valuable form of jade is known as imperial jade and comes from Myanmar, it is an emerald green color. Jades also appear in mottled green and white, and the rarer colors of yellow, pink, purple, and black.

Enjoy wearing this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
