I made these as an anniversary present for my wife, and well does she deserve them for putting up with me for 35 years.
Jade is the 'traditional' stone for a 35th anniversary in the US. It is coral in the UK. If you have a mind to, you can read one of my rambling dissertations giving my thoughts around all that and on the reasons for our eventual choice of jade: there's a blog entry devoted to such.
The pendant and ear-rings are both made in 9ct gold.
The jade is vintage: I purchased quite a variety of pieces that had been found in the safe of an old manufacturing jeweller in New York. They probably date back to around the 1950s.
They were all good quality stones, especially the navette cut cabochons which are AAA grade and about 15x7mm. The square rods of Jade are 20x4mm.
I have some of both left, as well as some round rods (10x6mm, A+ grade), some fine quality teardrop cabochons (14x10mm), and some large flat oval cabochons (30x16 and 25x18mm). I believe that they are all Taiwanese jade.
I think that the green is ideal with gold, but it looks good with silver, too.
