Grade A imperial red jade cabochon, with excellent lustre and translucency. This ring is rare as it has an intense and vibrant red hue, unlike other red jadeite which usually forms thinly on the surface of a jade rough and appears dull.
Certification for this 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.
