Jade has been a popular gift choice for more than 8000 years. First located in the Xinjiang region of Ancient China, jade, the rarest and hardest hard stone, quickly became a popular choice for everything from jewelry and ritual items to items used on the desks of the wealthy and royal. In ancient China, jade was considered to be a symbol of both purity and integrity, making it a much-desired item. Not only does it have exceptional durability, making it a desirable stone for many functions, its beauty, and supposed magical qualities led to its rise in popularity as a gift.
The Benefits of Real Jade
Real jade, also called natural jadeite and natural nephrite, could not be carved by a normal metal knife like other, ordinary stones. Instead, in the early days, it was shaped using a cord and sand, then carved with a drill and polished to a hard shine. While modern carving methods have become increasingly elaborate, with artisans now able to accomplish more with jade than ever before, its overall durability makes it desirable for both jewelry and decorative items. Jade is also associated with good health, wealth, and love. Some alternative medicines believe that it can be used to treat anxiety, stress, and even blood circulation disorders. These qualities make jade gifts and excellent choice for those close to you.
Jade by Color
Green has long been the preferred and best known color of jade; however, lavender and ice are a close second, but red, yellow, white, grey and black are all fashion favorites. Many are overwhelmed when they discover about the incredible array of natural colors available in jadeite jade. These real and vivid jadeite colors are amazingly fashion forward. There is a color of jade for everyone and every occasion.
