By rosette do you mean the large "roses" piped covering the cake?

Yes Handymama...Large piped roses like this one but with 3 tiers

Just a rosette cake :)

I was thinking jewelry, like vintage brooches or something? Or fantasy flowers; just a few really dramatic ones?

I LOVE the vintage brooches idea...but I don't think she'd go for it.....maybe a couple of really large jade color cabbage roses or peonies???

you can use any small to medium molds (like jewelry ones) and place jade colored stones in the center of the rosettes, or you can try something that sticks out of the cake like leaves

What do you guys think of doing something like this with jade colored stones or crystals?

I have a cake like this to do for May.  A 4 tier with 2 rosette tiers and 2 plain tiers.  The bride decided that the cake itself was a statement and needed nothing additional.  I agreed.  She is going to incorporate her wedding colors with tablecloth or tulle.  The rosettes themselves are very "busy".

Why not just do random piped rosettes in the jade colored buttercream icing??  I mean, it would look just like the picture, but have like every three or four roses in the jade color??  Otherwise use the round tier seperators  covered in Jade ribbon...  Kinda hard to add accent pieces on top of all those roses...

I was going to suggest cake jewelry. Since the rosettes are so busy and textured, I think the accents have to be off the cake. How about a cake plate with jade crystals hanging off chandelier-style and a few jewel accents on wires on top?
