  • Catalogue Essay

    Among all the colours found in natural jadeites, the most prized is green, followed by purple lavender which symbolizes elegance. These two colours happen to complement each other very well and is a popular chromatic combination in jadeite jewellery. A lavender jadeite gourd ring (Lot 602) offered in this sale is another perfect example. This special pendant, however, distinguishes itself by its clever and unusual design.
    A lavender jadeite boulder was carefully selected and fashioned into a pear-shaped cabochon that weighed 186.00 carats, then a portion of this cabochon was meticulously carved out to house another green jadeite of similar form and shape. The time, manpower and quality jadeite material invested into this masterpiece is indeed substantial and significant. Embedded in warm lavender colour, the jadeite double cabochon glows with an excellent translucency characteristic of superb Burmese specimen, exuding the vivacious spirit of spring season.
