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.

really nice large pendant
from Ottawa, Ontario
I was concerned that i wouldn't like this ring because of the snakes but I was pleasantly surprised. They are not over the top and the piece has a lot of presence with the lovely large purple jade. I think it will be a great summer piece.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

DISAPPOINTED WITH JADE OF YESTERYEAR!
from Montreal, Quebec
I liked the style and the green Jade. The thin silver backing spoiled the necklace. After looking at it more closely, the workmanship would have been better if there was more silver to work with.I also bought the green Jade ring to go with it, but it had a hairline crack in it.I was very disappointed in Jade of Yesteryear. I expected better quality. I would pay more if it was of better quality. I am returning both.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A LOVELY NECKLACE!
I received the Snake Pendant in Green Jade along with a green Jade Ring to go with it.The necklace is very pretty and the workmanship on the front and back is well done. The Cubic Zirconia on the necklace has a little more sparkle, but I would prefer to see white Topaz or a fine crystal in its place. The Snakes with its blue and green eyes wrapped around the teardrop shaped Jade is beautiful to see.The chain is cheap looking, but I will use my own chain in its place.Thee green Jade ring was a disappointment, because it had a hairline crack in the Jade stone, so I will return it.I like the Jade Necklace and will enjoy it.
