Beautiful earrings for any occasion made from jade. Since the dawn of civilization, jade has been one of the rarest and most valuable stones used in jewelry since ancient times. As with most stones it was ascribed certain magical properties. Jade is believed to grant wisdom and to ensure longevity and prosperity for those who adorned themselves with this stone. The Chinese once valued jade higher than gold, and it was known as the "imperial gem". Ancient Chinese emperors once used a Bi (jade disc with a hole in the center), to communicate with the gods.
