This is a pair of Type A jadeite dangling earrings set with 18K white gold and adorned with rose-cut diamonds. The pair of jadeite earrings is carved as pea pods 四季豆. Jadeite pea pod carvings are auspicious symbols in Chinese culture. 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. In other sayings, the 3 pods in the jade carvings represent the achievement of 3 desired goals in one's life.
This pair of jadeite carvings is exceptional in quality. The colour of the jadeite material is a vivid green and has a very pure green hue similar to the "Imperial Green" hue rarely displayed in the finest jadeite material. The translucency of the jadeite material in both sides of the earrings is also very high. This allows for the material to have a beautiful lustre and high glossy finish. The translucency also showcases the clarity of the jadeite material beautifully.
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. For reference, the indoor lighting has a colour temperature of 4000K which is commonly used in indoor lighting. As seen in the photos, the vivid green hue remains beautifully intense even in indoor lighting conditions and does not carry dark or grey tones.
