This is a pair of blue jade cabochon earrings. A rare colour in natural jadeite, blue is especially enchanting in jadeite cabochons due to the watery appearance that highly translucent jadeite can have. With this pair of blue jadeite cabochons, the watery appearance complements the blue hue perfectly.
Fine quality in jadeite can be broadly defined by translucency, clarity and density of crystal aggregates in the jadeite material. This pair of jade cabochons exhibits a combination of all these various qualities. High translucency of the jadeite allows clarity of the material to be observed easily. Crystal aggregates in the jadeite are also fine-grained and not visible to the naked eye. These result in a smooth, highly lustrous polish that greatly enhances the vivid blue hue of the jade earrings.
