About

If you love lavender jade —and I mean really, really, really love lavender jade— this extravagant necklace just may be made for you. It is composed of fifty-five 10 mm natural and untreated hand-carved medium-tone lavender jade beads and two small antique complimentary-colored green nephrite accent beads. The length of this one-of-a-kind necklace is 54", also known as, just over four feet. The beads are connected by hand-twisted silver wire and the piece is finished with a simple hand-fabricated hook clasp. The two 7 mm rich green nephrite jade beads are positioned at each end of the necklace beside each clasp fixture. The jade beads have a soft polish, not a hard shine. They feel luxurious traveling across the fingers. The silver has a complimentary satin finish. Shine is thus muted, glow and color maximized. You can wear this necklace doubled —even tripled— around your neck. You can also wrap it several times around your wrist and wear it as a bracelet. I love it worn at its full length. The beads are opaque, their light lavender color is evenly saturated across the entire selection of beads. The lavender would be considered a grayish-lavender but I saw the gray as more of a silver, which is why I chose to create the necklace using silver links between each bead. Silver is the whitest precious metal and its color highlights the silvery undertone in the lavender. I sourced these beads from a family business in Myanmar; they do small-scale mining in very difficult locations and then they carve the beads by hand instead of outsourcing the carving to another country, such as Vietnam. You will see "rust" stains and natural grain. All of the natural features of the stone that commercial jade producers remove with hydrochloric acid and then replace with polymer are instead left intact. This new generation of young miners appreciate natural, untreated jade -flaws and all. The two nephrite jade beads are old —circa 1900— and also hand-carved. These are fine, aristocratic Chinese nephrite beads. True "imperial jade" since Nephrite was the favored Chinese jade for thousands of years. Yes, 54" is a rather eccentric length for a necklace. And these 55 beads could easily be restrung on silk (go with either black or white silk thread; don't try and match the lavender. That would be a downscale look you don't want.) In time the links will oxidize between the twists, creating shadows. This extraordinarily long, sturdy, entirely handmade lavender bead necklace will ship with a certification from Stone Group Labs stating the jade is natural and untreated from Burma.
