Those who know me personally understand that I am nearly never without my jade bracelet.  As a Eurasian woman, my jade bracelet was a wedding gift and wearing it is part of my proud Asian heritage.

Take a trip to Chinatown and you’ll see Asian women everywhere wearing jade bracelets.  My grandmother has worn hers for 25 years.  The Chinese believe that jade protects you — that the jade would sooner break before anything harmful would happen to you.

In gemstone therapy, jade also has some fascinating properties.  According to www.gemstone.org,

it is said that jade ‘stimulates creativity and mental agility on the one hand, while also having a balancing and harmonising effect.’ So this beautiful gemstone brings us joy, vivacity and happiness all at the same time.

With this in mind, blue bijou has incorporated jade into their collection.  The baroque faceted pendant on the classic Sadie necklace is made from white rabbit jade and the vibrant stone on the Jocelyn necklace is made from candy apple jade.

While authentic jade bracelets go for a pretty penny, blue bijou also carries glass bracelets, reminiscent of a jade bangle in the Halo bracelets.

While jewelry is beautiful, jade also proves that the metaphysical properties of creativity, balance and protection make it functional as well.

Blue Bijou was a HUGE hit with my wife. I told you how she isn’t a very bling-bling type of girl, but she absolutely loved the Swarovski necklace and earrings. Thank you very much! And we will be enjoying the vacation that came as a bonus too. Blue Bijou ROCKS (literally and figuratively)!

Quincy is getting married in April and contacted Blue Bijou about customizing a jewelry set for her wedding day. Since her colors are champagne and chocolate brown (sooo her color), we worked together to incorporate those colors into her jewelry.

Below is the lovely Quincy bridal set with champagne freshwater pearls and brown Swarovski crystals with sterling silver clasps.

As a lovely gesture, Quincy ordered a string of chocolate brown freshwater pearls as a gift for her bridesmaids – aren’t they beautiful?
