Genuine Oriental Necklaces And The History Of Oriental Necklaces

Aug 9, 2008
If your looking for genuine Asian or oriental inspired necklaces online or you're interested in knowing more about these products, there are a few thousand sites you can find. These Oriental necklaces such as Carnelian, Colored Glaze, Crystal, Jade, and Pearl are available for a various amount of prices as is any other product online. If your looking for good quality you can check out the sites below and see what turns up. I've heard nothing but good reviews from these sites, so they can be trusted!

- OrientalJadeJewelry - Obvious to the name, this site specializes in Jade jewelry and necklaces. Very honest prices!

- AsianPearlsNet - This site has products like Lavender jade, black pearls, turquoise and coral and much more.

I couldn't find too many sites that had a lot of options for the Carnelian or Colored so here are some below that have a lot of really nice options to take a look at.

Topearl is a really nice site, please check this one out. They sell by the bulk so I won't be buying anything from them any time soon! But still, the craftsmanship is apparent. I might even go and try to find some of the items listed on that site available on other sites for single pieces since I liked them so much! On a side note if your searching for more info about Oriental, Asian, or Chinese culture there are also some other sites you can look on but, I always like to recommend Wikipedia since this site is a "book of knowledge." Anything and everything you want to know, you will find on this site!

For instance did you know that the first people to start making jewelry were the Chinese, 5000 years ago?!? Here's a little tidbit I found on Wiki that was really interesting about Jade Jewelry:

"Chinese jewelery designs were very religion-orientated and contained Buddhist symbols, a fact which remains to this day.

The Chinese used silver in their jewelery more often than gold, and decorated it with their favorite color, blue. Blue kingfisher feathers were tied onto early Chinese jewelery and later, blue gems and glass were incorporated into designs. However, Chinese preferred jade over any other stone. They fashioned it using diamonds. The Chinese revered jade because of the human-like qualities they assigned to it, such as its hardness, durability and beauty. The first jade pieces were very simple, but as time progressed, more complex designs evolved. Jade rings from between the 4th and 7th centuries BCE show evidence of having been worked with a compound milling machine; hundreds of years before the first mention of such equipment in the west."

That's really interesting to me because almost any Oriental site you go on that sells items, they have some sort of a product that involves different colors of Jade such as green red and purple. But I never really knew why! You can also check out this other site called All About Gem Stones and do a search for Jewelry_History_Asiatic.

Knowledge is power!
