    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.

    天然緬甸翡翠色彩多樣豐富,其中最受藏家青睞的莫過於艷麗的綠翠,及高雅的紫翠(又稱「紫羅蘭翡翠」)。紫、綠兩色本是絕配,經常出現於同一件翡翠飾品當中,本季另一件紫翠「葫蘆」戒指(拍品編號602)便是其中例子。但論到匠心及手藝,以下拍品顯然是非同一般。
    設計師以一顆厚重的紫羅蘭翡翠作基底,先選取合適的原石,打磨成梨形素面紫翠,再除去中心部分,以便將另一顆打磨完成的綠翠穩藏其中。過程中,紫翠的重量由原來愈 186克拉,大減至142.55克拉,可謂耗費不少人力物力。
    此外,中央通透水潤的綠翠,其豐盈的雙蛋面外形,隱透亮光,與紫翠相互映襯,更覺嬌艷迷人,展現春天的氣息。
