Some people like to spend their free time playing video games, Pinterest-planning their (imaginary) dream wedding, backpacking across countries or learning about wine. Me? I like to think about color. I collect different hues in my head: the blue-purple of jacaranda trees that almost seems to glow, the cheery yellow reflected off a canary’s wing, the radiant gradient of Flaming June‘s robe. Color is often the first thing I notice about an object, and I tend to catalogue the colors I see, one by one, in my mind palace until I’m left with an intangible, but no less pleasant filing drawer filled with folders marked ROYGBIV.
I’ve long admired Eva Chen’s jade bracelet for its cultural significance and the touch of tradition it brings to even her most badass looks. And when I think about it, I’ve always been drawn to the luminous shade of green—sometimes brightened by clouds of milky white and often shot through the more saturated shades of blue-green—that borrows its name from the semiprecious stone.
As so often happens, as I fixated on Chen’s perma-accessory, I began to notice the beautiful jade things around me. It started with a gold-inlayed jade pendant necklace at my favorite local antique store. Then Princess Kate stepped out in this gorgeous Temperley dress and my color fixation was fully formed. I began to see jade all around me, from this beautiful deep jade lingerie set to this totally on-trend suede jacket and this lace-trimmed cover-up. To stop myself from purchasing all the aforementioned finds for myself, I decided to round them up in case you, too, have a penchant for jade green.
