SGD$1,880

Grade A green jade cabbage ornament with good lustre and translucency. There are patches of vibrant and intense green hue on both front and back of the jadeite cabbage. The exquisite workmanship is fully exhibited by making full use of the natural colour change within the jadeite piece – the vibrant green areas are used to carve Ruyi (front) and Ginseng (back) on top of the cabbage. This jadeite piece can be worn as a pendant or served as a display ornament.

Meanings of the carvings:

Cabbage: Cabbage in Chinese is read as “白菜“ which has same pronunciation as “百财”, symbolises wealth and abundance

Ginseng & Ruyi (Scepter): Ginseng in Chinese is read as “人生”, which means life. The head of the Ruyi is similar to that head of the Lingzhi (fungus of immortality), which represents good health and longevity. Ruyi, in chinese characters 如意 also implies “get what you wish”. Hence this combination of Ginseng and Ruyi means a smooth life, and one get what he/she wishes.
