The Olympic Games

The Olympic Games will open this week in Beijing.

Jade plays an important role in Chinese culture. To honor their culture Jade has been incorporated into the Olympic medals.

The Gold medals will have white Jade, the Silver medals will have light green Jade and the Bronze medals will have dark green Jade.

Jade symbolizes honor and virtue and will be incorporated into the 3,000 medals that will be awarded.

OK Jewelry designers, what a great time to consider adding Jade into your new creations!

The very first piece of jewelry I ever remember coming from my dad was a jade ring he sent to me from overseas, a true treasure of the orient!
