Jewelry Collection Doubles As Mosquito Repellant
Guard yourself against the dengue and Zika viruses with necklaces and bracelets accessorized with citronella beads
Just in time to help combat the Zika outbreak in Singapore, By Invite Only’s latest jade collection, Yu Ahn, shields any user from mosquitoes that carry the dengue and Zika viruses.
The Singaporean collection includes necklaces and bracelets. Their chains are made from Onyx and Rhodium plates, while the stones are made of Burmese jade. Each Yu Ahn design has three citronella beads that come with it.
Jade is a Chinese symbol of protection. It is believed to protect the wearer from evil and bad luck. In this case, the evil happens to be virus-carrying mosquitoes. On the other hand, citronella is a non-toxic oil known for its mosquito-repelling quality. It is very effective against the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the creature that carries both the Zika and dengue viruses.
