This jade ring features a carved jadeite piece in the liking of a goldfish. The jadeite is Type A and has a high translucency, giving the carved goldfish a glassy look with high lustre and watery sheen. Goldfish carvings are auspicious symbols which represent an abundance of wealth and knowledge. The Chinese word for goldfish reads similarly to "gold and jade" in the Chinese idiom 金玉满堂 which directly translates to gold and jade in abundance, so much so that they fill up an entire hall.
With jadeite, quality of carvings can differ a lot based on the craftsman. Intricate carvings often require more skill and time. Usually only fine quality jadeite pieces are selected for more intricate jade carvings. Intricacies in jade carvings can be observed from the details carved. In this jadeite goldfish, contours are delicately carved and even the body of the goldfish has a natural looking curve which adds to the life-like appearance of the goldfish. The detailed carving complements the fine lustrous qualities of the natural jadeite. Natural blue sapphires and diamonds adorn the ring setting, providing a perfect finishing touch to this elegant jade ring.
