This pendant is a truly exquisite piece. It is made of 100% natural jadeite jade set in solid 10K white gold. This jadeite piece has a translucent snowy white background with bright green patches. This color is known as moss in snow, one of the rarest and most beautiful color of jadeite. The carving features a gourd, calabash or a Chinese ancient wine bottle. Gourds are common and insignificant in western countries but they have a much deeper meaning in Chinese culture. Gourds symbolize happiness and good luck. They are used for protection and blessing. It is believed that wearing a gourd shaped pendant can help protect against bad spirits and speed up the recovery after an illness.
Please note: there are a few natural stone veins in this pendant. They cannot be felt with fingers and do not affect the durability of the jade. However, the price has been reduced for this.
This pendant is very cute and dainty. It can be worn alone or layered. Minimalist and modern design, perfect for every day wear or any occasions. It will also make a great gift for your loved one.
