À propos de l'objet

Comprising two necklaces, each composed of one hundred and twenty-seven graduated jadeite beads of emerald green colour and fine translucency, completed by a gold clasp, mounted in 18 karat yellow gold, length approximately 755mm and 795mm respectively. \nAccompanied by Hong Kong Jade & Stone Laboratory certificates numbered KJ 81190(1-5) and KJ81191(1-5), both dated 12 August 2013, stating that the jadeites are natural, known in the trade as “A jade”. Also accompanied by SSEF certificate numbered 69131, dated 12 July 2013, stating that the jadeites are natural, with no indications of clarity modification. Further accompanied by SSEF Appendix stating that the jadeites' "vivid but well-saturated green colour, poetically also referred to as Imperial green, is due to the presence of well-balanced trace elements in these gemstones, typical and characteristic for the finest jadeite-jade from the reputed mines close to Hpakan in Burma (Myanmar)...... Assembling a selection of jadeite-jade of this quality in colour, translucency and fine texture is very rare and exceptional."

condition

Colour and Clarity: According to both Hong Kong Jadeite Jade Testing Certificates and SSEF report, the jadeite beads are natural, with no indications of impregnation, known as Type A jadeite jade in trade. SSEF appendix states that the jadeite beads are of "highly matching colour, trancluency and excellent surface quality. Their vivid but well-saturated green colour, poetically also referred to as Imperial green, is due to the presence of well-balanced trace elements in these gemstones, typical and characteristic for the finest jadeite-jade from the reputed mines close to Hpakan in Burma (Myanmar)...... Assembling a selection of jadeite-jade of this quality in colour, translucency and fine texture is very rare and exceptional." Please refer to the reports and SSEF appendix for details. In our opinion, the jadeite beads are well matched and highly translucent, of vivid, well-saturated green colour, with fine texture. Upon strong illumination, some jadeite beads have tiny dark spots or minor brownish streaks, not noticeable and not affecting the overall beauty of the necklaces. Condition: These two jadeite bead necklaces are dated back to the Republican Period, signs of wear to the clasps commensurate with age, both in good condition.
