Featuring a vivid green jadeite carving, this eye-catching design can be worn both as a ring and a pendant. The jadeite centrepiece has a vivid hue of green with a beautiful translucency. Fine texture of the jadeite material complements the translucency of the jadeite and lends a watery lustre to the jadeite carving.
The jadeite carving is of a pea pod 四季豆. The 3 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.
Designed as an elegant butterfly, the vivid green jadeite carving forms the body of the butterfly with diamond encrusted wings set in 18K white gold. The tips of the wings are further embellished with natural blue sapphires. With its exquisite design, this statement ring has an added versatility in its wearable design. The white gold butterfly is designed to be worn also as a pendant with the removal of the ring band (photos 4 and 5).
The jadeite carving is guaranteed Type A, without enhancements. The main photos are taken in natural lighting and there are 2 additional photos taken with indoor lighting.
