The jade bangle, first carved in China from nephrite, dates back at least four thousand years. A smooth circle of jade wrapping the wrist is thought to bring peace and protection to its wearer. Due to the unique patterns found in jade, every jade bangle is one of a kind. In China, it is believed that jade is a living thing that protects and heals the body and spirit of the wearer from ill forces. Chinese women believe that the jade bracelet protects from harm, and will break or chip as it takes the brunt of a possible fall or injury. Many women never take off their jade bangle. A jade bangle is a traditional gift from parents to their daughter.
