Last week I visited the David Marshall flagship boutique on Davies Street in London’s glamorous Mayfair to review a stunning lavender jade dragon pendant with 3.06ct of diamonds, 4.86ct pink tourmaline and 1.49ct of tanzanite gemstones. This show-stopping pendant is from David Marshall’s new spring collection celebrating Asia’s most precious stone.

The day was full of fabulous sunshine, so before heading to Claridge’s for a spot of afternoon tea with David Marshall himself, I decided to photograph this exotic jewel outside, where the spring sun made it sparkle and stand out even more so then within the confines of the Mayfair boutique.


Lavender has always been my favourite shade of jade, which I first clapped my eyes on in Hong Kong a few years ago. I remember instantly falling in love with a lavender jade bangle worth roughly $1 million after trying it on for just an instant – my boyfriend at that time was not impressed with my choice in our first jewellery experience together!


This exquisite lavender jade dragon pendant has been carved entirely from a single piece of rough lavender jade, a stone that adds an Eastern allure to David Marshall London’s high jewellery collection. This unique piece took more than eight weeks to bring to life since its inception by David! Intricate hand-carving carvings invoke powers of heaven and earth and mystic forces of life and death, and were inspired by David’s discoveries on a recent gem-buying trip.


Lavender jade is a stone of happiness, whose purpose is to evoke high spirits within its wearer. Jade is a highly valued stone in the jewellery world, which is particularly significant and popular in Asia – it has been known as the royal gem in China as far back as 3,000 BC and it is often regarded as precious as diamonds! Incorporating lavender jade into your jewellery set will purify the aura around you and dispel any negative feelings. So, if you desire an eye-catching piece, which will also bring you joy, then this pendant is the perfect jewel to add to your jewellery box!
