Jade Lotus, Aventurine 18K Gold Vermeil Bracelet


I have made these beautiful white 15 mm jade beads into a bracelet.  The jade beads are carved in the shape of a lotus and are interspersed with small green aventurine beads.  I have rarely found jade beds this beautiful shape.  The bracelet is 8” long and fits a 6” to 7” wrist.  It is finished with a 18k gold vermeil toggle clasp.  This is a one of a kind bracelet.

The lotus, also known as the sea rose, is a symbol of purity, fruitfulness and creativity.

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.
