    A fine jadeite bead necklace has always been considered one of the most classic and rarest connoisseur jewellery items. To assemble a considerable number of jadeite beads, a huge jadeite boulder is required to provide enough quality beads for selection. On average, two-third of theses beads are rejected in the process, so only beads of the best matching colour and translucency are chosen. This very necklace is a fine example resulting from such a highly selective procedure. It is composed of 108 jadeite beads of superb quality, carefully selected from a pool of 500 beads originating from a boulder that weighed almost 5 kilograms. Each jadeite bead is scrupulously hand-picked to ensure well-matched colour, texture and translucency.

    天然翡翠珠項鏈在藏家心目中一直被視為最經典、最難求的一種翡翠珠寶,其中最主要的原因是耗材量極高,打造一條珠鏈的石材必需有足夠的份量。一般來說,想要集合到一條翡翠珠串,在選珠的過程中要摒棄約三分之二的珠子,才能取得最匹配的幾十顆。這一條長翡翠珠項鏈就是上佳的例子,由500多顆珠子篩選而成,原石的重量就接近5公斤。上面108顆珠子無論是在顏色、水份和質地都十分匹配,比一般的項鏈長,搭配小鑽石扣,既可穿戴出傳統素雅的韻味,亦可搭配出奢華的現代感。
