    About chrysoprase jewelry

    Chrysoprase is a captivating gemstone renowned for its vibrant green hue and translucent appearance. A variety of the mineral chalcedony, chrysoprase gets its distinctive color from the presence of nickel impurities. Ranging from apple green to a deep, rich green, the stone shows an apple-like glow.
    One of the great features of chrysoprase is transparency. The light penetrates the stone and illuminates it from within. Combined with vivid color, this transparency provides chrysoprase a unique, eye-catching quality. The gemstone is typically cut into cabochons or beads to showcase its natural beauty.
    Chrysoprase has been used for centuries in jewelry and decorative arts. The name comprises the Greek words “chrysos,” meaning gold, and “prason,” meaning leek, properly describing the stone’s luscious green color.

    The gemstone is sourced from various locations around the world, including Australia, Brazil, Tanzania, and the United States. Due to the  chrysoprase’s unique combination of color and transparency, the gem has been highly valued and widely used by such jewelry giants as VCA, David Webb, and Tiffany & Co.

    About jade jewelry

    Jade jewelry has a rich history and a profound cultural meaning that spans centuries and continents. In Asian culture jade is considered more precious than diamond or gold. The gem’s deep-rooted history in China is dated back over 7,000 years. The Chinese referred to jade as “yu,” which means “royal gem.” It was highly prized by the imperial family and used to craft jewelry and ceremonial objects. Jade was considered a symbol of virtue, purity, and the Confucian values of wisdom and compassion. In ancient Mesoamerican civilizations such as the Maya and Aztec, jade played a significant role in religious and ceremonial contexts. Jade jewelry was worn by rulers and elite members of society, symbolizing power and divinity.

    Despite an aura of traditions surrounding the stone, in modern life jade received an interesting spin. In the 2020s it was worn by celebrities and went viral on social media. Today jade pieces not only reflect the cultural background. They are considered as energy purifiers and good spirit protectors. Jade is thought to be a symbol of luck and among crystal aficionados has an ability to be a money magnet.

    Whether you are wearing a jade ring or jade bracelet to increase your luck, attract wealth or simply for the sake of beauty, shop your  jade jewelry online at Nadine Krakov Collection.
