Maya legend tells of how the god of maize used three jade stones to hold up the sky apart from the sea. The ancient Maya deposited three jades in the tombs of the aristocracy, for the green gem came to be regarded as a sacred stone and source of life. Guatemala's Ruben and Gilda Perez showcase the natural beauty of light and dark jade earrings that are crafted by hand with sterling silver hooks.
