Our Jade Workshop
Our jade factory opened its doors in 1974 and remains the largest jade operation in Central America with roughly 63,000 square feet of factory, museum and showroom area. Because we re-established the jade carving industry in Guatemala, over 300 Guatemalans today earn their livelihood from the mining, carving and selling of jade products.
It takes teamwork at Jade Maya to explore, find, mine, transport, test, sort, saw, trim, grind, polish, drill, set, string, design, price, sell and ship our beautiful jadeite jade jewelry and museum replicas to you. We all share the same vision of harmony, beauty and satisfaction. We guarantee the best quality and certified jadeite jade jewelry you may find on the market. When we say its jadeite jade, it is 100% Certified Jadeite Jade.
Artisans of the workshop
We provide jobs and training in multiple skills to our employees, with the main objective of providing you a high quality fine handcrafted gemstone as part of our jewelry and museum replica catalog.
The raw jadeite jade material is transformed into pre-Columbian style museum quality replicas and exquisite handmade unique fine fashion jewelry. the finished product goes directly into our showroom, thus avoiding the middleman.
The jade factory is well-known among tourists, celebrities, and politicians. In March 1999, President of the United States Bill Clinton, spent two hours at the Antigua jade factory. Shortly after the Clinton visit, the Premier of the Republic of China, Vincent Siew, also came to visit and shop at Jade Maya.
