Accessorize Stylishly, Live Harmoniously. Arrayed in artistic symmetry, our exclusive Jadeite Talisman Necklace showcases a striking range of warm jadeite hues. Interspersing its classic rondelles are spiritual and ceremonial Ba Gua octagons, each etched with the eight-trigram symbols of Yin-Yang philosophy. 8-12mm jadeite, 3mm gold-filled spacers. Made in the U.S.A. Natural variations will occur. 32"l.
Can genuine jade be red, lavender, black or white? In a word, yes, as eloquently evidenced by our lovely multi-hued Jade collections—the objects we offer you here, as well as the jade displayed at our National Museum of Natural History. Though green has historically been the most prized color, many jade treasures (including our museum’s own carved lavender Jade Dragon Vase) showcase other colors of this spectacular gem.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
