Long bib style necklace with Mayan “jades” - a centerpiece of double serpents, a small dog, and tubular beads - modern and ancient beads of spondylus shell, new sugilite, & 14k gold.

Notes:

Jade was incredibly important to the Mayans, taking on a great spiritual and religious significance. The stone's green color signified water and vegetation, symbolically tied with life and death in the eyes of the Mayans. Serpents were very important social and religious symbols, as being the vehicles by which celestial bodies, such as the sun and stars, cross the heavens.
