This icy jade pendant is carved intricately as a crab claw. Crab claw carvings have an interesting meaning. Crabs crawl sideways, 横行 in Chinese. The pincer is also its 'hand' in other word, which translates to 手. Hence in Fengshui practices, a crab claw carving symbolises 横财就手 or directly translated as to claw wealth and windfall to its wearer. This symbolism of the crab claw makes these jade carvings popular amongst businessmen or any persons simply looking for better fortunes and wealth.
Symbolism aside, this jade pendant is expertly carved with beautifully bevelled surfaces to give the crab claw carving a life-like appearance. The jadeite used in this carving has a high translucency which greatly enhances the icy, colourless hue of the jadeite material. The icy jadeite is almost entirely colourless but for a very light tinge of green which can be observed when the jade carving is placed upon a white background.
Completely natural and Type A, the jadeite crab claw carving is set with 18K white gold complementing the icy appearance of the colourless jadeite. The 18K gold pendant hook is decorated with natural diamonds.
