Lovely carved Soochow jade necklace with jade pendant


This beautiful necklace proves that jade should be seen more often. Soochow Jade gets its trade name from the city of Soochow in China. These pale green carved Soochow beads vary slightly in color and texture, adding interest and authenticity to the stones. The strand combines the jade with sterling silver spacer beads. A dark green olive new jade teardrop pendant finishes off the piece, bracketed by sterling beads. A sterling silver lobster claw clasp is accompanied by a tree of life charm, adding to the spirituality of the necklace. Pair with our "Olive new jade and sterling silver earrings with a twist!"

While the names are correct, "Soochow" and "New" jade are not actually jade, but a type of green serpentine. Serpentine gemstones are said to help with emotional cleansing in general. They are said to have the same spiritual values as green jade because they produce a tranquil mood, and help ease feelings of depression. It is believed to be an excellent stone to use in meditation, and is associated with the heart chakra and the astrological sign of Gemini.
