Details

The majestic design of this is designed by Guatemala's Jimenez Family in honor of K'abel, queen of the Maya. Falling round the neck like a breastplate, the necklace is crafted by hand with tubular pendants of mint green jade linked together with sterling silver. K'abel was a renowned warrior queen whose tomb was found in 2012 in the Maya city of El Peru-Waká, in northwestern Petén, Guatemala. Considered one of the greatest of Maya rulers, K'abel was a military governor of the Wak Kingdom who ruled for at least 20 years with her husband, King K'inich Bahlam. She carried the title of supreme warrior or kaloomte, which placed her in a higher position of authority, over her husband.

"Like a queen"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

That is how I felt wearing this, so the piece is aptly named. I really thought it was not going to fit me well, but it sits just right. Normally, only shorter length necklaces work for me. This is bold and gorgeous. Ive always lived close to the ocean and the apple green jade reminds me of the sea foam over deep, churning water. I paired it with the Enduring Bloom earrings of the same color by Estuardo Jimenez and the stones match perfectly. I thought the price was a bit inflated until I received it. This is a lot of jade so I would say its justified. My Guatemalan mom loved it (verde manzano is her favorite jade color) and my daughter will grow into it. It looked great on all three of us despite age differences and my skin and hair are a bit darker and my facial features are not as soft. This would look good on anyone, Im sure. If you are on the fence, just buy it. The pictures do not do this justice.

"Classic design"

The ring has beautifully crafted silverwork not just on the top of the ring, but on the sides as well. The bezel setting surrounds the dark amethyst and makes it pop.
