The name “jade” goes back to the Spanish conquest of Central and South America. It was known to provide protection and a cure for kidney disease.
In 1863, a Frenchman proved that two minerals, jadeite and nephrite, were the same gemstone as what we call jade. This stone has been known for over 7,000 years.
The jade is an 8 mm ball. From the tip of the round silver ball to the bottom of the jade ball measures 1/2 inch. Each post is held in place by a finding that includes a round, flat piece that lies next to the ear, keeping the earring stationary and making these earrings more comfortable to wear.
