    Unlike many gemstones, jadeites of superb quality do not require any facets to show their true appeal. In fact, less is more when it comes to this special green gem. Only material which are clean and pure, free from cracks and fissures would be fashioned into the simplest forms, such as beads, discs and bangles. Craftsmen understood from an early stage that curvilinear forms bring about the best reaction with light which gives jadeite its translucent and enticing glow. Simplicity is much treasured and highly prized when it comes to evaluating jadeites. Lots offered in this sale which attest to this statement include a jadeite bead necklace, a jadeite hoop, and two exceptional demi-parures.
