I found these beautiful matching green jade buttons and have repurposed them into earrings by putting a 18k gold frame on the back with a French clip (post with clip to keep it firmly in place on your ear) The design on the front is a raised Chinese double happiness character. The buttons measure 7/8” across.
Chinese royalty has worn jade for centuries. It is believed to be a spiritual stone and has been called the jewel of heaven. It represents the five principal virtues: charity, modesty, courage, justice and wisdom. From cloudy white to golden brown, light to dark green, to rare lavender, jade is the most highly prized Asian gemstone. Jade has been regarded as the most precious stone for thousands of years. It is believed to protect the wearer and ensure good luck and good health as well as to increase life span.
