Gorgeous Green Jade pendant necklace. These stones are such a lovely colour, more of a subtle and soothing green than bright or mossy. The coordinating Jade pendant is a smooth polished teardrop. It hangs from a sweet Tibetan silver connector. It will look so pretty against a black, navy or plain white top, or even on tanned skin! This necklace is available in two different styles, and I only have one each available:
Circle – this necklace is on a single strand silver tone chain approx 20″ / 50cm long
Swirl – this necklace is on a double strand silver tone chain approx 18″ / 45cm long
Silver tone findings and toggle clasp.
Birthstone: Jade – Pisces or Aries
Good for: strengthening friendship, attracting wealth, success and luck
Collection: Joan of Arc
BeeJewelled’s necklace ranges are named after those influential and important women we have looked up to throughout history.
Born around 1412, Jeanne d’Arc is considered a heroine of France for her role during the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years’ War. With no military training, Joan convinced the embattled crown prince Charles of Valois to allow her to lead a French army to the besieged city of Orléans. Her army achieved a momentous victory. After seeing the prince crowned King Charles VII, Joan was captured by Anglo-Burgundian forces. She was tried for witchcraft and heresy, found guilty, and burned at the stake in 1431. She was just 19.
By the time she was officially canonized in 1920, the Maid of Orléans (as she was known) had long been considered one of history’s greatest saints, and an enduring symbol of French unity and nationalism. Not bad for the peasant daughter of a tenant farmer!
