Jade is one of the most sought after gemstones in the asian world. It is thought to have countless medicinal and fortuitous magical properties. For certain, however, it is lovely. When light flows through it, it seems to glow.
The florettes and the drops are antiques which I purchased separately and reworked into this modern setting. The inspiration is Cartier’s wonderful jade and enamel jewelry of the 1920’s. The earrings are perfect for summer dressing, but can be an understated accent with winter black.
