Jade – Genuine or Fake
I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. I prefer to be simple, only wear my wedding ring and a necklace. As far as pendants, genuine stones are my choices over costume jewelry. My mom gave me a jade pendant which I treasure to the utmost.
Then I started paying attention to jade and found out that there are genuine jade and fake jade. Jade is a beautiful stone that can be green, orange, yellow or white, and is graded high, medium and low in terms of quality.
Fake jade can be dyed jade, infused jade in cheaper gems or cortez. Other fake jade can be simply plastic.
