This is a Type A jadeite bangle with an intricately carved surface. The carving depicts a phoenix in flight on one side of the bangle with carvings of peony flowers covering the rest of the bangle's surface. The artistic carving is inconspicuous to the casual observer and can only be noticed on closer inspection. Phoenix carvings are often depicted in many different cultures and symbolise hope with a deeper meaning of renewal and healing.
This product listing also consists of a jadeite pendant. This jade pendant is crafted from the inner portion of the jadeite bangle and thus has completely matching colours and jadeite quality. A similar image of a phoenix amongst flowers carved beautifully into a round pendant. In the middle of the pendant, there is a Chinese character 福 carving. This Chinese character directly translates to prosperity and good fortune.
The jadeite material in both the jade bangle and jade pendant has a blend of light green hues in different saturations. The gradient of colours adds an artistic feel to the intricate carving. Texture of jadeite is dependent on its crystal aggregate structure and in these 2 jadeite jewellery pieces, the texture is very fine and gives the jadeite a soft, gelatinous appearance.
This jade jewellery set is highly collectible for its fine jadeite quality and intricate carving. Not only do these jadeite pieces wear beautifully, they carry a similarly beautiful and auspicious meaning as well.
