Lavender Jadeite honors Bona Dea, the Classical Greek Goddess of Women. Her temple, Aventine, was cared for only by women. She was believed to protect women through all of their changes in life. It is no wonder Lavender Jadeite was chosen for Bona Dea with it’s ability to lend calm and serenity. We call this set, Aventine.
Kiersten Elizabeth is fascinated with rare and unique colored gemstones and enjoys unexpected combinations in her designs. One of her favorite gems is Jadeite Jade, not to be confused with softer and less colorful Nephrite Jade. Jadeite Jade is far more durable making it most suitable for Fine Jewelry. Jadeite Jade is scarce and can be discovered in green, lavender, red, orange, yellow, brown, white, black, and gray. The most prized and valuable colors are the incredibly rare Imperial Green and Lavender with the highest quality specimens found in Myanmar, previously known as Burma. Perfect for someone who seeks the best quality in one of a kind jewelry.
