Earrings " Sea Life" (serial). Jade, Silver plate.
The stone Jade is timeless and priceless. In the Central America for well over a thousand years and the ancient Mayas prized it above gold. In ancient China a prospective bride would present her betrothed a jade butterfly to seal their engagement. Likewise the bridegroom would give his sweetheart a gift of jade before their wedding. Ancient Chinese legend tells of a youth who wandered into the garden of a wealthy mandarin in pursuit of a multi-colored butterfly. Instead of being punished for trespassing, his visit led to marriage with the mandarin's daughter. This an ancient stone that has historically been used to attract love. Today, a jade butterfly symbolizes successful love.
