These beautiful natural soft apple green jade round buttons are carved with a lotus blossom. I found the jade buttons in China and made them into earrings. The earrings are 3/4” in diameter and are framed on the back with 18k gold vermeil and a French clip (post with clip). The color and carving are beautiful and will make quite a statement on your ears.
The lotus, also known as the sea rose, is a symbol of purity, fruitfulness and creativity.
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.
