Throughout history, there has been a belief that wearing a jadeite jade bangle can offer protection against evil and ward off negative spirits. This belief stems from the stone's association with luck and good fortune. Jade is thought to possess a special connection to the divine, serving as a medium for communication between humans and higher beings. Therefore, wearing beautiful jade bracelets regularly is believed to attract good luck, repel negativity, and invite blessings from deities.

How Jade became a symbol of protection in China

The story of ‘The Jade Emperor's Heart’ tells a legendary tale of how people started to wear jade to ward off evil in Chinese mythology. 

Once upon a time, there was a virtuous and kind-hearted young man named Li Wei. He was known for always helping people in need at the village . One day, Li Wei was walking through a dense forest where he encountered a mysterious old man with a long white beard. The old man’s eyes sparkled with wisdom and his voice carried a sense of otherworldliness.

The old man approached Li Wei and said, “Young man, you possess a rare quality that is deserving of a great gift. I present to you the heart of the Jade Emperor hidden within this green jade stone.” With those words, the old man handed Li Wei a radiant piece of green jade, pulsating with a divine energy. He was astounded and grateful for such a precious gift. He thanked the old man and vowed to treasure the jade stone forever.

From that day onward, there was a remarkable change in Li Wei’s life. The green jade seemed to emanate a protective aura, shielding him from misfortunes and warding off evil influences. It was as if the Jade Emperor’s heart was guiding and guarding him. 

There was a time when a catastrophic event struck the village that caused everyone in the village to face hardship but Li Wei remained unharmed. He was able to walk through dangerous paths unscathed, and even the wild animal seemed to submit to his presence. 

People marveled at his good fortune and attributed it to the divine power of the jade. News of this jade stone started to spread fast and wide. It made many people envious of Li Wei. Zhang Feng, a notorious bandit leader at the time was particularly envious of Li Wei’s blessings and determined to steal the jade stone from him. 

Zhang Feng and his associates attacked Li Wei on one moonlit night as Li was returning home. Zhang's associates made every attempt to snatch the green jade but, Li Wei fought off every attempt and refused to let go of the jade. In that critical moment, the jade emitted a dazzling light, blinding Zhang and his associates. The light grew brighter and more intense, creating a protective barrier around Li Wei. The bandits became frightened by this bright aura coming from the jade and ran away believing the wrath of the divine is upon them.

The word of the attack spread throughout the region, solidifying the belief that the jade stone possessed extraordinary powers. From then on, people flocked to Li Wei seeking his blessing and he became the 'Jade Guardian' who used the jade stone to cure the sick, and dispel evil spirits for people. 

As time passed, people began to wear jade jewelries themselves like Chinese jade bracelets and jade bead bracelets from light green, emerald green to even lavender jade colors to ward off the evil and seek luck. To date, the legendary tale of Li Wei and the Jade Emperor’s heart is told as a reminder of the importance of the virtuous deeds, the benevolent power jade beholds, and its ability to ward off evil.

Regularly wearing natural jadeite jade bangle is believed to be advantageous as it helps nourish our bodies and purify our inner soul.
