Grade A imperial green jade cabochons, matched with two icy jade round balls, designed as a pair of earrings. Both the green jade cabochons have an intense and vibrant imperial green hue. The quality of the cabochons is good with great lustre, fine jade grains and high translucency. Both the icy jade round balls have very high translucency and good clarity. Quality is very good with fine jade grains, with natural attractive glow radiating within the jadeite balls. These two jadeite balls do not have any hole drilled though. Beads with holes drilled through, are usually carved from remaining jade rough to make bracelet.

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.
