The jadeite centrepiece in this ring is carved in the shape of a tiny mountain with sleek angular sides and a lightly carved mountain top. This abstract mountain carving makes use of the frosty appearance of the natural jadeite to great effect, creating this pristine looking, tiny mountain that sits elegantly atop a white gold ring.
This jadeite ring is set with 18K white gold to enhance the clear and pristine appearance of the jadeite carving. Sparkling, colourless diamonds are used to decorate the left face of the jadeite mountain to create the effect of snow capped mountain top. And on the right face of the mountain, the white gold ring has an interesting pebbled finish.
In Feng Shui practices, mountains symbolize support, strength, wealth and resources. Mountains are also referred to in the Chinese term 靠山 as it translates to a support or backing which one can lean on. In this jadeite carving, the abstract carving of a mountain carries this beautiful symbolism in an elegantly set gold ring.
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. The indoor photos are to showcase how the jade ring would look like in normal indoor lighting.
No cracks. Slight flecks cotton-like inclusions that can be seen on one corner of the cabochon from certain angles (can be seen more clearly in photo 4).
