Dragon Ring ~ British Columbia Jade & Sterling Silver Ring
This amazing men's dragon ring is made of heavy 925 sterling silver. It is adjustable, and has a Chinese Dragon worked onto both sides of the band.
I have set it with a stunning, emerald green Imperial Jade stone mined in British Columbia, Canada - Jade capital of the world! This beautiful dark green jadeite stone is a large 15 x 20 mm oval (1/2 by 3/4 inch approx.)
Imperial Jade is the most sought-after because of its deep and rich green shade. This is because of its high chromium content.
Dragons in eastern cultures are usually depicted as wingless, four-legged, serpentine creatures with above-average intelligence. The word "dragon" has also come to be applied to the Chinese lung (龍, Pinyin long), which are associated with good fortune and are thought to have power over rain.
It is believed in Chinese tradition that Green Jade symbolized the five virtues of humanity, which are courage, modesty, justice, compassion, and wisdom. Therefore, having this piece of stone will also imbue its wearer with these gifts! Having a piece of Green Jade is also beneficial when you’re traveling alone, as it will protect you from being hurt while you’re on your journey.
Jade is also a stone of the Heart Chakra, the traditional 35th anniversary gift, a modern 35th birthday gift, a Mystical Birthstone for those born in March, and one of the Zodiac birthstones for the sign of Virgo.
This is a sturdy, chunky ring and weighs about 25 grams and it comes in it's own presentation box.
