This pair of green jadeite earrings features a lightly carved round shape with smooth bevelled edges. This carving is a classic jadeite carving popularly referred to as a safety coin or 平安扣 carving. The design has a flat and completely round surface with a single hole carved in the middle.
Both sides of the jadeite earrings are carved from a single jadeite rough and display a beautiful refreshing hue of green. Translucency of the jadeite carvings is good and this is highlighted by a gradient of bright green to a lighter green colour which is visible on both jadeite earrings. In this pair of jadeite earrings, a single, natural diamond is added in the middle of each jadeite carving.
Jade safety coin carvings are usually worn as a protection against ill fortunes. Fine jadeite safety coins are also a symbol of wealth and nobility and are thus worn, kept and passed down families from generation to generation as family heirlooms.
