Lavender Jade is a very rare beautiful and brighter version of the "stone of heaven"  Available as raw lavender jade stone and carved jewelry it is also on the lower price scale compared to translucent imperial green jade which is the high end.

Since we hear the question frequently: is lavender jade dyed? the answer is: normally no. The fact is there is no need to dye lavender jade because there is enough raw lavender jade (usually jadeite) available and prices are not very high means no need for it because there is no commercial benefit.

Lavender Jade

The color is also known as purple jadeite jade and similar to other jade gemstones the more translucent the material is the higher the value. 

This is also a starting point for jade fakes because when the stone is in an acid bath long enough it will become more transparent and shiny although lavender jade is usually not dyed but since this stone version is rather rare the dying could happen by objects of over about $ 100,-.

Any question ? >  jade4beauty@gmail.com

This variant of jade is the jadeite stone and not nephrite with probably the most attractive color in the spectrum it comes in many varieties and probably has the most pretty hue. 

Lavender is strongly feminine orientated just see the photos they visualize why this color is next to green and white the most sought after. Buddha pendants and necklaces with a elephant as the central object framed with silver are quite popular.

Lavender jade meaning? The jewelry and raw version has no particular  meaning beside of the mystic and health factors Chinese people are interpreting into "The stone of heaven" which actually its the same with every jadeite jade mineral.

What I personally like is the lavender color especially when it wont be not too pale. When a jade stone was created due to very high atmospherics pressure and magnesite penetrated the stone during that time the color turned into a hue of purple (lavender).

Lavender Jade Ring.

The color spectrum for lavender jade rings is within blue and purple actually a bit more magenta into the blue with a touch of red.  Since there is no much basic "fire" in a jade ring design many jewelry creations use diamonds to add some sparkling. 

But finally it's the buyer who makes the decision but with lavender jade it's usually preset which means this light violet stone color and a silver setting anyway click the pictures for more there are other great designs available most are handmade.

There are countless of lavender ring style in particular the color of the stone and the form which usually is a small cabochon styles but not much can go wrong with this beautiful gift which gorgeous lavender jade is whether by design nor by the colors or metaphysical properties Chinese buyers always interpret into which often overwhelms the other parameter. Although jadeite don't have such a high profile as diamonds as wedding rings the color and a good design makes attractive jewelry for that purpose..

Although jade is not so popular as an engagement ring material but with some sparkler around this can be trimmed into the high end. Actually jadeite slowly found its way into the high-end upmarket and is slowly becomes mainstream. Its finally the colors and the designs which make the difference.


High-end jade jewelry has a brighter level of translucency. The more transparency the higher the price which is normal with jade anyway. When buying check for micro-cracks with at least a 10 x magnifying glass.

Dying lavender jade.

Although Lavender jade is mostly not dyed it happens sometimes how to find it out? When larger area on the gemstone have a good dark color since it is rather difficult to find a jade stone with this color and a consistent surface usually there are always some inclusions and lavender jadeite is rather light and gets a more saturated color when dyed. 

And when the purchasing price reaches higher grounds check it with the UV flashlight. This torch lights are not expensive but a good indicator if the basic jade parameter are OK.

Considering the continuous cheating attempts especially when buying jade jewelry at a local store better harness yourself to be prepared or buy from a trusted source as in the website.

When buying this pretty stone jewelry through the pageboy here is safe but there are many shops and jewelry stores in the world and really most people don't know how they play the game. Interesting in lavender?  As an alternative try white jade jewelry they also make great rings either as a solid all carved out jadeite ring or in a silver or white gold setting.

Just have a look at the lavender jade beads used at the bracelet bangles and ball chain below to see the real beauty.

Although the gemstone has probably the most beautiful jade color it is not the most valuable before is white and imperial green jadeite which are more valuable when a few physical factors come together but in overall terms the purple hue is hard to beat just look at the small jewelry pictured below such as earrings fingerings and pendants.

A beautifully carved purple jade ring is often mounted into a silver setting or white gold since the rather cool color matches best. Lavender jadeite bangle & bracelets are for sure some of the most attractive items on your wrist and a pendant maybe on a leather string or a matching necklace.

Actually this is the same with all jade colors it all has to do with a certain trace element impurity when the stones was created in this case its magnesite making the hue.

  • Lavender Jade Jewelry
.In general there is no much lavender beside of the Burmese jadeite version. Although Chinese were the first to mine jade already since long time ago actually in Turkestan but that was in the color region from white yellow and green plus everything in between but lavender jade is rather rare. According to the color its rather a feminine stone very sought after by women no wonder since the hue is really beautiful.

Today the usual version is jadeite lavender often blended with silver and white-gold as the setting material.  The raw stones always come like that mainly with small jewelry such as rings since only that way a uniform color over the whole piece of jewelry can be arranged.

The boulder at righ was found in a Myanmar jadeite mine north of Mandalay and west of Myitkyina in Kachin State.




Looking at Chinese culture and how many jade art they produced it is somehow closely connected to the jade-stones. Chinese connect supernatural powers to jadeite jade related to health and supernatural protection which morphed into fashion in recent years.


Chinese jade which actually is nephrite appears in six basic colors with many variations and jadeite comes in much more vivid hues plus finer texture and a higher degree of translucency and one of them is lavender.

Green is the number one and the most important jade color white and lavender is next although there are some more such as black the most sought after is always emerald or imperial green. Imagine such an impressive Buddha statue, a bangle or any other item made from this piece of mineral which was dug up somewhere in northern Myanmar's Kachin State which is actually jade county with of mines of different crystals.

  • Lavender jade bangles.

Although it is everything but easy for the craftsmen to "tickle" the right work out of this extremely tough material. On top of it considering to include the colors in a useful pattern is not easy at all. If a few good jade parameter come together they can produce pretty bangle made from lavender jadeite.

Attractive lavender ear-clips and rings are sought after actually they are one of the mayor sold items in any jade shop because they simply look good are not so expensive and available in many colors. Other hues are green white etc. are many here are some of them. Although most people are after "imperial green" other hues can be very attractive it depends also on the dress somebody wear.

Rough lavender and green jadeite are highly sought after for pendants they plus bangles and rings are the most popular jadeite items. Since they are not big and bulky also the price tag is no so high. When having a high transparency they easily can reach a high four and even five digit dollar price.
  • Lavender Color Jadeite. 
I already have seen great jadeite works in Kuala Lumpur Singapore and Yangon Myanmar stores but the highest prices the first two places have. Similar to the situation with other gemstones including diamonds as long as the material is in raw state it looks not particular interesting but after it is cut polished faceted and carved the value is rising. 

Just look at this raw lavender jade rocks above after it is treated by a carver it becomes a piece of adornment often even art the rocks are sometimes spectacular in terms of colors but without crystals as we know it from other minerals.



Most of this pretty crystals are enhanced in China since there is the volume of people which forms the "critical mass" to make it a good business. Also with Myanmar jade which is actually is jadeite they make beautiful lavender pendants available in the Bogyoke Market Yangon and other places on the globeOne of the reasons why people buy jadeite jade stone are the brighter hues which are more intense compared to nephrite which actually is the "Chinese Jade". It's also a bit harder but usually nobody cares about the kick to buy is mostly the style colors and textures. 




Currently this raw jade stone is only mined in Myanmar (Burma) and Guatemala where a blue version is also found which already was used by the old Olmecs and Mayas similar to the green version the Chinese used. Olmecs have been an ancient civilization such as the Maya living in the lowlands of south Mexico corresponding to today Veracruz and Tabasco.
