History of Jade
One day, one of Confucius' disciples asks him:

"Jade is precious not because it is rare, but because the quality of jade corresponds to the virtue of a good man. It corresponds to virtues such as benevolence, wisdom, righteousness, decorum, loyalty and fidelity and it also corresponds to the principles of the earth and the heavens. Jade is soft and pleasant, just like the benevolence of a gentleman ... "
A legendary stone in South and Central America, jade has embodied the power and nobility of emperors since Chinese prehistoric times. Several polished jade objects have indeed been found on prehistoric sites. The objects carved in this stone were imported to Europe by the Portuguese at the beginning of the 16th century and quickly became very popular. They were also compared to Aztec jade objects brought back by the Spanish conquistadors. European jewelers began to make many jade jewels, such as bracelets, necklaces, pendants, rings or earrings. The healing and spiritual virtues of this stone have forged its fame through the centuries and all around the world. In fact, a Chinese saying goes: "You can estimate gold, but jade is priceless".
