Jade pendant necklace, 'Jungle Pyramid' (Guatemala)

Guatemala's Zandra Lorena Sajbin highlights the unique beauty of dark green Guatemalan jade in the diamond-shaped pendant of this necklace. She sets the gem in sterling silver as she crafts the necklace by hand. The ancient Maya referred to jade as Ya'ax Chich, and they regarded it as a sacred symbol of life, fertility and power.
