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.

LOVE the beauty!
from Winnipeg, MB
It's absolutely gorgeous! I love the dragonflies on the side and the violet stones complement the yellow jade perfectly. I bought the size 10 but it's a little large...next time I'll know to size down a little. I have rec'd many compliments on it. I love the large size of it. It's definitely a bold statement piece. It won't be the last one I buy from this company. thanks TSC!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Definitely a Keeper
By Love the Shopping Channel
from Caledon Ontario
What attracted me to this ring is the mention of dragonflies. The ring does not disappoint. The silverwork including the dragonflies is very very well done. It is a big ring with a big stone that matches the bracelet I bought from Jade of Yesteryear recently. Very pleased with the quality of this line. Never bought jade before and now I have four pieces from this line and love them all. I only have one small comment on the sizing. I bought a size 10 which normally fits on my middle finger and the ring is just a little too big but I am keeping it.

Very nice ring!
the price is very good for such amount of silver. The sides are not shown in the picture but are very beautiful - the silver work is amazing.The size 6 fits more as 7 though. Love it!
