Grade A green jade saddle shaped ring with excellent lustre and great translucency. It has an intense and rich green hue that is evenly distributed across the jadeite. The quality of this jadeite is very high with fine jade grains, great lustre and translucency. The water content is extremely rich, therefore the whole jadeite ring appears shiny and glossy.
Certification for this jadeite ring by Nan Yang Gemological Institute (http://www.ngi.com.sg/), a reputable and independent Singapore gem testing lab, is available upon request.
Jadeite is highly demanded and is exclusively sourced from Myanmar, formerly Burma, hence it is widely known as “Burmese Jade”. It is rich in heritage and widely believed to have spiritual meanings in the Chinese culture. Jade is believed to protect the person who wears it. A horse saddle (an 鞍) is a symbol for “peace” (an 安) because the pronunciation of the two words is the same.
