About

Jade Tiger Necklace In ancient China, the tiger represented a harmony of opposites—a quiet, beautiful, and graceful exterior hiding ferocity, intellect, and fearsome determination. The gems in Studio Greytak’s Jade Tiger Necklace are a metaphysical tour of that same harmony, starting with show-stopping pendant of bold and exquisite tiger’s eye. When Tiger’s eye is cut into a cabochon and polished, its silky luster is enhanced by a single, luminous streak, a chatoyant, or cat’s eye, effect that adds to its reputation as an all-seeing, all-knowing gem. Ancient Egyptians interpreted that literally, placing the stone in the eyes of statues representing their deities. But tiger’s eye goes further, balancing observation with wisdom and fortitude. It could be called the stone of productivity, or a symbol of self-made success. Contrast that with the blade of deep green jade, synonymous with immortality and the ability to bring absolute peace to the soul. No other symbol represents ancient Chinese culture as well as jade. Here, it brings the cosmic energy to balance the intensity of tiger’s eye. As far back as the Neolithic period, people in China carved jade into tools, jewelry, and artwork. Over the millennia, it became an integral part of both spiritual and social customs until by the earliest Chinese dynasties, court customs dictated that people wear their jade as a status symbol. Taoists believed jade guaranteed immortality. Those of the highest orders commissioned burial suits made to preserve their earthly bodies as well as their souls. Made of thousands of thin plates of jade sewn together with metallic thread—gold for princes, princesses, and the highest nobility, and silver or bronze for the lesser aristocrats—a single suit could take years to complete. For those without the means to pay for such an extravagance, there were smaller pieces, all bearing the eleven virtues identified by Confucius: benevolence, justice, propriety, truth, credibility, music, loyalty, heaven, earth, morality, and intelligence. Jade is still synonymous with the most desirable virtues. Modern healers rely on it to harness the power of the ultimate life force, to ward off all negative energies, and to balance and to connect with the most elemental of positive energies. Working with these two stones are a host of metaphysical giants: turquoise and amber cast a shield of protection; rutilated quartz and tiffany stone provide wise guidance; opal and citrine shine a sunny, positive light; agate enhances patience and balance; and labradorite brings serendipity. This is a necklace fit for a warrior queen, an instant heirloom to remind each owner that within her fragile chest beats the heart of a tiger. Materials: 14kt Gold Tigers eye Jade Turquoise Amber Rutilated quartz Tiffany stone Opal Citrine Agate Labradorite.
