Gold is valuable; jade is priceless. - Ancient Chinese Proverb
When you think about nobility, what stones come to mind?
Diamonds, emeralds, and rubies; correct?
Well, what if we told you that some of the most dignified royals in history would find little use for those stones.
Yes, the Chinese royals from 3000 BC onward considered jade as the true gem of royalty.
Emperor Xu Shen (148 CE) praises Jade by detailing its virtues:
"It is benevolent in its brilliance. It is wise in its tranquil tone. It is courageous in that it may be broken, but will never bend."
He makes a compelling argument if you ask us.
Beautifully crafted with jade and accented with ebony, we call it The Emperor.
