Glassy jadeite cabochon ring set in 18k white gold with diamonds.
Colourless jadeite varies in translucency and with it quality. At one end of the spectrum are jadeite pieces that are relatively opaque but colourless. On the other end of the spectrum are jadeite pieces that resemble frosted ice with high degrees of translucency. The very best pieces are classified as glassy jadeite. What gives rise to this highly sought after quality is the jadeite's crystal aggregate.Very fine crystal aggregates in jadeite result in smooth glassy specimens.
