Grade A icy jade ball ring with great lustre and translucency. The quality of this jade ball is high with fine jade grains and jelly like texture. It has no hole being drilled through. Jade beads with holes drilled through, are usually of lower quality used to make bracelets. For extra security purpose, a hole is drilled 1/4 through the ball, with a gold knot within it, so that the jade ball will be fully secured in its gold setting.
Certification for this icy jadeite ring, certified 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.
