New Ice Jade & Water Jade Jewelry for 2015 by Mason-Kay Jade

As I always say, most people think of the color green when they think of jade. Lavender jade is probably the next most well known of the colors of jade. However, jade is found in an incredible array of colors; green, lavender, red, yellow, white, black, grey and ice. Ice jade is exactly as it sounds. It looks icy as it is devoid of color. Different than moonstone, ice jade is more glassy, pure and much more durable. Ice jade in its finest form has an incredible glow to the stone as ice jade tends to have distinct translucency.

Now, water jade is very similar to ice jade, but it exhibits more of a watery color with light shades of green. Water jade can also demonstrate levels of translucency. As with all finer jadeite, the tighter the crystalline structure the higher level of translucency and therefore the finer quality.

We have some new, beautiful ice jade and water jade designs. Below are just a few pieces from our newest ice jade water jade jewelry collections of the year. Our designers are strongly committed to trying to create beautiful jade jewelry designs that enhance the beauty of every jade piece, as well as make jewelry that is comfortable and pleasing to wear. In the last several years, ice jade has become increasingly popular and more well known.

If you are attending the upcoming JCK Show in Las Vegas we hope you will come by our booth (S10412) to see all our new, designer jade jewelry collections. Click appropriately to see a few sneak peaks of our newest green jade collections and lavender jade collections.

NEW Designer Jade Jewelry Collections & Trends from Mason-Kay Jade

'Flower Power', 'Simple & Stylish', 'The Layered Look', 'Sleek & Simple' – These are a just a few jewelry trend headlines of late. To be very honest, I think many of these so-called "trends" are always in style. In fact, it seems that the most true jewelry trend and true fashion trends in general are whatever style fits you. You will always hear someone say "the seventies are back", 'the eighties are here again", "I wish I had kept my hippie garb from the sixties" and so on. Whatever was, will be again. So, basically as a fashion culture I think we have learned that if you love the look and wear it proudly you can wear anything.

Our designers at Mason-Kay Jade are always creating new jade jewelry designs and collections that will please all fine jewelry buyers and their styles. Our previous New Jade Jewelry blog post featured some fine green jade drop earrings and several styles from a collections featuring green jade disc/circle contemporary designs. Our designers are meticulous and style conscious about every one-of-a- kind, hand-made Mason-Kay piece.

The pieces featured below are representative of the many designer jade jewelry collections that will be featured at JCK Las Vegas (Booth S10412). Many of our newest pieces will make their debut at JCK Las Vegas. All the pieces featured below were designed by one of our more popular designers, Kristina. All her jade jewelry is exclusively designed for Mason-Kay Jade.

The first piece that is featured below is a perfect example of how some styles never going out of style. The black disc, also known as a 'Pi' in China (pronounced 'bee'), is a classic jade design that has been worn for centuries and is as current as ever. It is made even more classic and interesting with the added feature of the gold snake. The snake being another jewelry style that has endured for thousands of years.

New Jade Jewelry Designs by Mason-Kay – Fall 2014

Sad but true, the summer is ending and fall will be upon us. Fall Fashion Week in New York makes it impossible to ignore. In New York we saw an interesting array of styles, fabrics and patterns – as usual. However, there were many designers with more low key fall groupings that displayed more muted tones and greys; Colors that crave to be adorned with color.

Below is a small showing of Mason-Kay's fall jade jewelry designs. This designer jade jewelry grouping covers most possible jewelry needs. Some pieces are more casual and fun, while others are flashy and formal. Our designers make an effort to keep up on the most current trends and fashions while using the loose jadeite material wisely to create the best designs and styles for our customers.

We hope you enjoy these pieces. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or if you are interested in seeing our complete line of designer jade jewelry.
