This pair of exquisite jadeite earrings features 2 natural jadeite cabochons exhibiting an alluring hue of green. The lush hue of green is highly saturated and is further intensified by a lustrous translucency. Good translucency and clarity of this pair of jade cabochons allow light to suffuse the jadeite material evenly which produces a watery, almost jelly like appearance to the jadeite cabochons. Photographs of the jade cabochons, in natural light, capture this watery lustre accurately and the resulting effect is stunning. In warm indoor lighting, due to the translucency present in the cabochons, the beautiful green hue retains its watery lustre and does not diminish in colour or beauty.
Good translucency often also allows crystals or cotton like inclusions to mar the evenness of colour in jadeite. In this pair of cabochons, the rich green hue is even throughout and this is especially prominent given the size of the cabochons. As a note, despite the saturated green hues in both cabochons, there is a slight hue difference in the pair. This is perceptible only when the 2 cabochons are placed together and viewed at certain angles. However, whilst worn as earrings, this hue difference is almost unnoticeable.
Jade cabochons are one of the most popular types of jade carvings. However, due to the semi-spherical shape of cabochons, more jadeite material is required to carve a proportionately shaped cabochon. Thickness of this pair of cabochons is proportionately half of their respective widths and this which gives the cabochons a rounded dome shape which accentuates the beauty of the cabochon earrings. At approximately 11.6mm by 10.6mm in size, this pair of cabochons are significant in size and combined with its lustrous green hue, the jade earrings are definitely eye-catching.
In terms of value, this impressive pair of natural jadeite earrings are an extremely rare find and makes for a good jewellery investment, notably for its matching cabochon sizes combined with qualities that define fine jadeite: Colour, translucency and clarity.
The main photos are taken in natural lighting and there are 2 additional photos taken with indoor lighting to showcase the jadeite in different types of lighting. This helps to provide a good view of how the jade jewellery looks like under different lighting conditions to provide as accurate a representation as possible of our jade pieces.
