This jade bracelet is made up of 20 round Type A jadeite beads. Carved from a single jadeite rough, the 20 jadeite beads have an even bluish green hue. The soothing mix of blue and green gives the bead bracelet a sense of calm and peace with a more subtle appearance. A good translucency in the jadeite beads adds a watery lustre which greatly accentuates the appearance of the jadeite beads. In natural lighting, light is able to penetrate the jadeite beads due to their good translucency and this allows the beads to glow beautifully, showcasing the soothing bluish green hue of the jadeite.
Each jadeite bead in this bracelet is extremely well polished. This is due to the fine grained structure of this particular set of jadeite beads. The smooth finish is especially important in bead bracelets as the jadeite beads are in constant contact with one's skin. Having a fine polish not only increases the glossy lustre of the beads, but also provides a smooth and comfortable wearing experience. Matched sets of jadeite beads in fine quality are hard to come by and make good collection pieces whilst also being extremely comfortable for daily wear.
