JADE OF YESTERYEAR COLLECTION INSPIRATION
This is inspired by my personal collection of jade that I have acquired over many years from all around the world. Since most of the jade carvings in this collection are over century old, it makes it very difficult to replicate. A lot of the art of jade carving has been lost through out the years so it took us a long time to contract a master Jade Carver to complete this collection. This collection features replicates of old jade carving and sterling silver pieces mixed with gemstone and CZ.
I am Chinese born in Taiwan raised in N. Africa and educated in the United States. I spend most of my vacation time through out Europe and Arabian countries. I adore jewellery and spend over 30 years of collecting jewelry especially jade effects. I find this collection especially fascinating because of the bridge between east and west—antique Chinese jade fashioned in western style. It is very classic and yet as timely today as they were at the time the original pieces were made. It is a way of wearing art and history.
Jade is a stone that has been used by many cultures and civilization. Its natural variation of color adds to the character and charm of each piece. Jade is used as spiritual ornament from Chinese Neolithic era to the Mayan culture.
It is adored by noble men and woman as luxurious objects Ancient Chinese cities were traded for a piece of Jade.
I remember 20 years ago, finding few of these pieces in antique houses and auctions were such a joy but today if I ran across one it is such serendipity. I am sure this limited collection of jade of yesteryear will become a collectible in years to come.

FEMININEand ORIGINAL DESIGN
The color purple is quite stunning. They are lightweight and sparkle in certain lighting. Very feminine and can be worn all day for any occasions. No regrets in this purchase.

Please, name colours as they are
I bought a set - pendant and earrings. Liked the silver work.Also I like those earrings first of all because they are well balanced - left and right ( I consider it very important ) and look massive but are light .What was disappointing - the colour of jade itself: it`s not red, as described or pictured - it is brown (
The pair of earrings that I received is not the way I expected. The design is quite nice especially when viewed on TV, not too big not too small but the jade stone(purple) that I received was not that shiny as seen on TV. Hope my wife will like it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
very nice earrings
from Ottawa, Ontario
Just received these earrings to match the pendant and I'm pleased with their look. They aren't too heavy and the purple jade is a lovely shade.Really good price for this quality.Look forward to wearing the complete set...ring and bracelet with my spring outfits!
Loved these earrings!
They are just the perfect size and very attractive. I bought the charcoal earrings which are more neutral so I will get a lot of wear out of them!
By shop till I drop
When I opened the package I thought the wrong earings had arrived. They are the right earings but not what I expected. The yellow stone is not as bright as depicted on air and on-line. The accompanying stones are too tiny to see and generally I am unwhelmed with this purchase. They are also smaller than anticipated.
These earrings are quite nice - not too big, not too small. The snake motif is somewhat subtle - i.e. you may not know there are snakes on the earrings until you have a closer look. The green jade is definitely a keeper. I'm still deciding on if I should keep the black ones also..
