Guatemalan Jade and Sterling Silver Bracelet
Guatemalan Jade and Sterling Silver Bracelet
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Bracelets

Jade has an ancient history in Mesoamerica, where it was used by cultures from the Olmec to the Maya to the Aztec. It symbolized life and death and was used to make figurines, jewelry, and even inlays for teeth. The Maya believed that a jade bead would provide passage through the underworld. Because conquering Spaniards were more interested in gold, the sources of ancient Mesoamerican jade were lost for hundreds of years. In 1998, Hurricane Mitch, one of the most powerful hurricanes in modern history, exposed boulder-size jade deposits near Xalapa, Mexico. Archaeologists now believe this location was a major source of jade for ancient civilizations. The simple designs of these hand-carved accents let the stone’s mottled colors take center stage. Handcrafted in family workshops in Antigua, Guatemala. Stone colors may vary.
