Since at least 2950 B.C. jade has been treasured as a royal gemstone. The difficulty in carving this hard but beautiful gemstone demanded the extensive resources available only to the ruling elite, which is the reason it came to symbolize power, status and prestige. Jade has also been treasured for its more spiritual symbolism. Often, jade was cut in the form of a disc with a hole in the center. These circles were commonly known to symbolize the sky or the heaven. In fact, the Chinese character for demonstrates the strong symbolic ties. Each horizontal line has a meaning: the top represents the heavens, the bottom the earth and the center section, mankind. Jade has gained a reputation in jewelry for being timeless and classic. It�s long history and everlasting quality makes it an ideal gemstone for representing either fine craftsmanship or timeless symbols and values.
