This glassy jadeite pendant is set in a sparkling design with 18K white gold and natural diamonds. Purely colourless and glassy in translucency, this natural jadeite carving exhibits a clear, pristine appearance. The texture of this jadeite carving has an almost watery feel due to its fine crystal structure and this particular trait also creates the strong shimmery glow that is characteristic of the finest glassy jadeite.
This jadeite pendant is carved as a pea pod or 四季豆. The 3 dome shaped pods represent the achievement of 3 major goals in one's life. The auspicious meaning of pea pod jade carvings is also derived from the direct translation of pea pods in Chinese. The Chinese words sound similar to four seasons and in a way, pea pod carvings symbolise health and prosperity all year long, throughout the 4 seasons every year.
