48 hour giveaway! Jade necklace from China!

This giveaway will only last until Tuesday night...

My Father is a Geologist, he travels to China very frequently. I always have a list of things that I have him pick up for me when he goes. Last time he went I asked him to pick something up for a giveaway on my blog. He came home with this darling jade necklace he found in Beijing.

It is hard to see how pretty the color is indoors at night. It is very light almost white jade with just a very slight familiar greenish tone.

The flower is very intricately carved. The center of the flower is a little cluster of red beads.

The necklace is beautifully knotted and a fisherman's knot is used to adjust the size.

I had my daughter model it for us. I almost wore it to church today!

My favorite stone is definitely an emerald, especially a princess cut! That cut will make any stone gorgeous! I love it because emerald's are my birthstone and green is my absolute favorite color!

Audrey said...

Count me in! My favorite stone is a diamond . . . it's my birthstone, and since it's colorless, it's the only gemstone that truly goes with everything!

I am a follower, too.

My favorite is black onyx. I have a ring my grandmother gave me when I was in junior high and if ever fits again, you can bet I'll hardly ever take it off.

I wish I could be original and get away from my birthstone, but I really DO like topaz. My favorite topaz, though is the blue, not the ugly yellow of November's stone. As for the why...My grandmother bought be a beautiful blue topaz ring for my ninth birthday and it's been my favorite ever since!

Safire said...
