Tourmaline and jade in a rainbow of colors form a novel necklace. Designed to drape or tie like a scarf, Matta's beautiful design is endlessly versatile. The sterling silver clasp features a floral motif and is bathed in 24k gold.
Orange jade enhances energy while yellow jade is linked with understanding and empathy. White fosters the practical application of spirituality. Cool and serene, green jade is thought to augment longevity, fertility and harmony. A powerful, electromagnetic gem, tourmaline strengthens body and spirit.
