This pair of dangling jadeite earrings is crafted with a matching pair of jadeite double hoops. Jadeite double hoops are a classic jade carving which requires intricate carving skills. The interlocking jadeite hoops are carved out from a single jadeite rough, allowing both jadeite hoops to be separated yet interlocked with each other. Each jadeite hoop is perfectly carved in a round shape with a cylindrical cross-section.
The matching pair of jadeite hoops is carved from an icy, highly translucent jadeite material that displays a pure white colour with a light touch of green at the top hoop of each earring. The icy jadeite double hoops are classically set with 18K white gold, encrusted with natural diamonds. The gold ear studs, that the jadeite hoops dangle off, are removable from the dangling jadeite pieces. The gold ear studs are designed as a pair of Eternity Knots which symbolise long life, harmony, and continuity.
In this jade earrings design, the gold Eternity Knots are ear studs that can be worn by themselves or matched with any dangling earrings with a suitable hoop attachment. Each jadeite double hoop can also be attached to a compatible pendant clasp allowing it to be worn as a pendant (photos 9 and 10).
The main photos are taken in natural lighting with 2 additional photos taken with indoor lighting to showcase the jadeite in different types of lighting. Jadeite colours may appear differently in various lighting conditions and the photos seek to provide an accurate representation of the jadeite colours.
Clean without cracks.
Each jadeite hoop has an external diameter of about 15mm and a thickness of 5.5mm. Together, the double hoops measure about 20mm in length. Total length of jade earring with Eternity Knot stud is 36mm.
18K White gold with natural diamonds.
