Beautiful Jade Ring”

I love this ring! I was once a malachite lover and then switched to jade. The ring is gorgeous, large but not too large and the jade is a beautiful green that works with all greens. I strongly recommend this beauty!

Best Uses
  • Great accent to all jewelry and particularly black or neutral wardrobe

Preserving Traditions

Ruben and Gilda's parents taught them the value of hard work and that art is an expression of culture. Many of their designs include jade, which was highly valued by ancient civilizations in the area and used as ornaments, tools, and burial artifacts. Their artwork is often a reflection of Guatemalan culture and they used techniques passed down over generations.
