Serene Jade Necklace
|A Smithsonian Institution Exclusive|
Tranquility Now. Two green gems—classic jade and relative newcomer prehnite—are interpreted with flair in this Serene Jade Necklace. The openwork jade pendant is carved with stylized dragons and a symbol of longevity. Stainless steel bail and spring ring clasp. Natural variations will occur. 20"l. with 2.5"l. pendant.
Can genuine jade be red, lavender, black or white? In a word, yes, as eloquently evidenced by our lovely multi-hued Jade collections—the objects we offer you here, as well as the jade displayed at our National Museum of Natural History. Though green has historically been the most prized color, many jade treasures (including our museum’s own carved lavender Jade Dragon Vase) showcase other colors of this spectacular gem.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
