Details

For the indigenous people of pre-Columbian America, especially the Mayas, the ya'ax chich or "jade" meant life, fertility, and power. It was the most precious object, even above gold. These dangle earrings, by Guatemalan artisan Zandra Lorena Sajbin, feature dark green pear-shaped jade discs on silver ear wires with an etched butterfly design.

Says Sajbin of her designs, "God has given us the wonderful gift that is nature: flora and fauna. These pieces represent all those domestic or wild animals that we can appreciate in all parts of the world."

"Elegant and eye catching"

Beautiful, well made ring with lovely thoughts behind its design. I wear it every day. The jade is very pretty - I m thinking of purchasing the stud earrings in 3 colors to match.
