Jade Butterfly, Aventurine Melon, Faceted Citrine, 18K Gold Vermeil Necklace

Necklace is 20” around including the butterfly which is 2 3/4” x 1 3/4”

$750

This beautiful and delicate carved bi-color green and golden jade is carved in the shape of a butterfly.  I have beaded it with carved melon shaped green aventurine beads to pick up the green color in the butterfly.  Interspersed between the aventurine beads are faceted golden citrine which gives the necklace a bit of sparkle.  This piece of jade is intricately carved to show off the butterfly.  The necklace is 20” around (including the 2 3/4” by 1 3/4’ butterfly) and is finished with a 18k gold vermeil clasp.  This one-of-a-kind design is a bold yet delicate fashion statement and is great for every season.

The Chinese symbol of the butterfly represents love, specifically young love.  The butterfly symbolizes an undying bond between lovers, as well as, joy and married happiness,  It is also a symbol for happiness and prosperity. It is an emblem of summer and symbolizes long life and immortality.

Chinese royalty has worn jade for centuries.   It is believed to be a spiritual stone and has been called the jewel of heaven.  It represents the five principal virtues:  charity, modesty, courage, justice and wisdom.  From cloudy white to golden brown, light to dark green, to rare lavender, jade is the most highly prized Asian gemstone.  Jade has been regarded as the most precious stone for thousands of years.  It is believed to protect the wearer and ensure good luck and good health as well as to increase life span.

Aventurine is a type of microcrystalline quartz. It varies from translucent to opaque and has small inclusions that give the stone a little bit of sparkle.  The stone’s name comes from the Italian word “ventura” for “chance”.  Citrine is a glassy, wine-yellow variety of quartz.
