Details

In olden days, Maya nobility wore jade pectorals and jewelry, for they believed the gem was sacred and more valuable than gold.

A hidden hook adjusts the length as desired.

"I cannot wait to give this gift!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This leather and jade bracelet is exactly what I hoped it would be, simple enough for someone who doesnt usually wear jewelry, yet a truly lovely and striking piece! The lines are clean and the jade is beautifully shaped. I have to wait two more weeks before I can present it...he will love it! Also, it arrived earlier than expected!

This bracelet takes the worry out of ordering it as a gift because it is so adjustable. It also looks impressive in person. The quality and attention to details by the artist doesnt go unnoticed! Also, it comes with a small thank you card and a handsome gift pouch...Nice!

Beautiful earrings that are a good size to be noticed, but not overwhelming or heavy. Some of my favorite go-tos as they match everything,
