Rich dark green combines with tawny golden brown and copper in this modern ethnic inspired necklace. The large disks are verdite, a variety of serpentine that is still fairly uncommon in the trade. Nephrite jade and copper beads imported from India make up the rest of the necklace, which is hand-strung and knotted on heavy green silk and finished with a copper S-hook clasp from Bali.

Disclosure: Please note that the display mannequin in the photo is about half-human scale; the necklace has been draped around the back of the mannequin to simulate how the necklace would hang. Please refer to the other photos for a picture of the entire necklace and an indication of scale. Copper is not hypoallergenic and those prone to skin irritation should consider one of my pieces using sterling silver or vermeil findings. Like all of my jewelry, this necklace is not intended for use by persons under 13.

About the Stones:

JADE: Many different stones are referred to as “jade,” but only two, jadeite and nephrite, are considered to be “true” jade. Jadeite is sodium aluminum silicate, and is usually green or mottled green and white. In addition, yellow, red, lavender, blue, brown, white and black jadeite are known to occur. Nephrite is calcium magnesium iron silicate and ranges from dark green to creamy white.

In Chinese tradition, jade symbolized the five virtues of humanity: wisdom, compassion, justice, modesty and courage. It is also considered a heavenly stone, and brings luck, longevity and wealth

SERPENTINE: The term serpentine is used to refer to a group of magnesium hydrosilicate minerals, usually green, that are found as masses of tiny crystals. Serpentine is often used as a substitute for, or passed off as, jade.
