This particular collection of sterling silver jade necklaces contains a large section of jewelry designed to bring good luck to its wearers. Jade is often employed for this purpose due to the widely held belief that the stone protects personal wealth and fights ailments. Especially loved by our South American artists, Guatemalan jewelry maker Pablo Castellanos utilizes the stone in sterling silver jade pendants for its symbolic role in Mayan civilization; he explains, “It helps my work be fully identified with the history, customs and traditions of my country.” Adhering to tradition is of the utmost importance to Pablo, who employs jewelry making techniques that are now dated by machines but definitely not lost on fans of his work. We hope you enjoy this historically rich and visually eclectic collection of sterling silver jade necklaces
, all carefully handcrafted by gifted artisans like Pablo.
