Gemstone Jewelry For Girls

There are some pieces of jewelry found out there in the world of gemstones and precious metals that transport the viewer to an older, more exotic time. Antique-style necklaces or earrings can make a statement that is timeless and priceless, and makes the wearer an unforgettable picture of class. Jade gemstone jewelry can do just that thing for you.
Being one of the most beautiful and classic of precious stones, jade has been a popular choice for statement-making jewelry for hundreds of years. From the misty years of ancient China, to the time of colonization all over the world, to the very day we live in, jade gemstone jewelry have been the talk of the town, designators of importance, and bringers of luck.

In Chinese culture, the gemstone jade is more valuable even than gold. It is culturally defined to mean many things, and thus has been used in the daily lives of many of its people. One emperor actually chose to be buried in a suit made completely of jade, hoping that its special properties would work to preserve his body, and keep it from decaying.

It is believed across cultures to contain health and luck properties. Some have believed it to bring wisdom and prosperity, or to be good for the improvement and wellness of one's heart, liver, or kidney. Some have worn pieces of jade jewelry as a means of protection, and it has actually been used in weapons many times throughout history. Once again referring to Chinese culture, jade represents love and virtue. Some varieties of the stone have even been believed to be used for evil means. Whatever the interpretation, jade gemstone jewelry have always been pieces attached to meaning, symbols of greater things.
It is likely that you will think of a green stone when you think of jade. However, it may surprise you to know that there are many different colors that can be produced when creating fine jade beaded jewelry. There is even a black variety, which has a whole different meaning than any of the other colors.
You can find a large variety of jade gemstone jewelry these days, by searching local jewelry stores, or even going online. This is a classic and timeless look that will impress anyone, and you will find yourself wondering why you didn't find yourself a great piece like it before. And you never know, it might just end up being a good luck charm.
