The color palette for this natural jasper necklace was inspired by the range of hues and earthy textures found in the central Chinese countryside. But the design comes from Mandarin court necklaces that were popular during the early years of the Qing dynasty (1644–1911). These elaborate strings of beads and charms were said to be inspired by Tibetan mala beads given to Emperor Shunzhi by the Dalai Lama. This versatile necklace illustrates how something as simple as a strand of beads can connect cultures. Natural, undyed jasper beads and gold-plated brass spacers. Handmade in China.

      Comments about Jasper Court Necklace:

      The photo shows an elegant combination of colored beads, and the description of the necklace specifically refers to the color palette as "the range of hues and earthy textures found in the central Chinese countryside." (very romantic) The photo shows hues that have a radiance to them and a variety and balance of delicate hues, brights & darks. The necklace that I received was made up of colors that were dark and dull. The "gold plated brass spacers" appeared thin and cheap. Also, the material used to thread the necklace did not allow the necklace to drape gracefully, instead there was an unsightly kink. Over all the quality was very poor. Granted, I believe it was Jasper, but it failed to live up to the photo and the description. I think this is crucial when someone is trying to find jewelry that will compliment their style and color of dress. I purchased this necklace as a gift for a family member, and returned it promptly.

        Comments about Jasper Court Necklace:

        I was a little disappointed that the one I received as a gift is mostly dark greens. The photo shows a variety of colors and shades. I see from the comments that everyone was a little mislead by the catalog photo. If the colors reflect the China countryside, it must have been very dreary that day!

          This is a beautiful necklace but I wish it had a clasp. A clasp would allow one to use this as a two strand necklace.

                This necklace is not as beautiful as pictured online. I don't mind having more greens, but the green colors of this necklace look dull.

                I would have liked it more if it had been more as shown in picture. I did not need all the green that was in it.

                  Comments about Jasper Court Necklace:

                  This is a very beautiful necklace and it will work well with a great deal of attire.

                  I purchased it as a coordinating piece to a red shawl based on the photo.

                  Given that photos I had anticipated a bit of garnet in the necklace, but has no garnet and definitely has more of a blue/slate color palette

                  It is still a positively radiant piece.
