Pair of Jade Bangles

Jade, known as 'yu' in China, is a gemstone that is used as both an ornament and as jewelry. To the Chinese, jade stone is also the embodiment of the Confucian virtues of courage, wisdom, modesty, justice and compassion. The polish and brilliance of jade stone is considered by the Chinese to be representative of purity while its compactness and hardness reflect intelligence.
