THE STONE OF IMMORTALTY, THE COLOR OF ENVY 

Thousands of years ago, the mountain rocks containing jadeite-gem was carried by water from the mountain tops to the rivers. Eventually they washed and weathered to contain only the better and finer quality mineral. Jadeite’s interlocking crystals, also called grains, produce a tightly inter-grown, compact mass that bonds together. This selection of jadeite rough by nature has left us with what is known as a standard for “old mine” material. Just like this one, the finest-quality jadeite is usually cut into cabochons and set in jewlery. Jade is often considered synonymous with China. The country’s worship and appreciation of jade can be tracked back about 8,000 years. This exceptional Lot 2133 is a very fine and rare jadeite cabochon and diamond pendant, the cabochon measures a considerably large size of 31.78 x 29.01 x 14.03 mm, with very good symmetry, proportion, and thickness.

NoteThe history of jade covers a period of time dating back over 4000 years and a geographical area spreadig over 4 continenets. However, the most well known story this exquisite stone tells is buried deep within the history of china. There, jade has always been valued more highly than any other precious stone, and was treasured as the royal gemstone called the ‘Yu’. It was believed that the gem possessed many virtues suches as healing powers, good luck, prosperity, longevity, happiness and love. The color contrasts in which jadeite is found range through a variety of greens, manve, yellows, white and black. However, the most sought after color is deep, emerald green color. Unlike the usual sparkles of a cut gemstone, jade has a distinct glowing effect, caused by the gem’s translucency. The light is caught within the stone and reflected back in an even manner. Because of tectonic plates float, they move and occasionally collide with one another, when the lower plate take the stone to depths where the necessary intense pressure, heat and minerals will eventually form it into jade. A high pressure, low temperature metamorphic environment is necessary to form the jadeite. The delicacy of its design doesn’t imply the production of the necklace is simple. For the unity of its look and the consistency of its color, it requires a rough large enough to withstand the great deal of weight loss during production, more importantly, it also requires inconceivable patience and luck to find such stone that carries a wide enough band of vivid green color. The rough is cut by welltrained and experienced jadeite experts into most economical number and size of cubic shapes. Then the cubes are polished into round beads. Of this complicated procedure, meticulous planning, steady hands, attention to detail and well-practiced expertise are required at every stage, which marks the extremely high value associated with an outstanding piece like jadeite bead necklace. Composed of thirty nine natural graduated translucent jadeite beads in the necklace, possessing a richly saturated and evenly distributed green coloration, combined with the high translucency as well as their very fine texture. Such a combination of characteristics of this set of green jadeite a piece of matching beauty and importance.

AN IMPORTANT 10.03 FANCY INTENSE PINK DIAMOND RING

Ever since its emergence on the earth’s surface centuries ago, diamond has been regarded as one of nature’s most wondrous gifts. In addition to beauty, diamond possesses gemmological characteristics that distinguish it in a world rich in striking and unusual gemstones. For example, its structure of strongly bonded carbon atoms makes it the hardest substance known to mankind. Because of this quality, the gems are often cherished as emblems of eternity, and regularly adorn engagement rings as marks of love and devotion. With rare Fancy Intense pink colour, the 10.03 carat diamond is stunning and elegant reminder of the many positive traits long associated with diamond. In pink diamonds, the fancy intense grade corresponds to strongly saturated colour in a light to medium tone range. From GIA’s experience, diamonds with this tone, saturation, and color range are highly unusual. When pink diamonds are encountered, they are often weaker in saturation and darker in tone. Such a degree of color in a 10.03 carat fancy intense pink qualifies it as a truly rare specimen. In an earlier study of almost 1500 pink diamonds, GIA noted that approximately one-half of one percent (0.5%) of those diamonds were Fancy Intense pink. Manufacturing the fancy intense pink diamond Though nature granted this invaluable gift of colour and transparency, it is the responsibility of man to capitalize on these qualities and bring the diamond’s innermost beauty to full display. It is with the art of cutting that a diamond’s natural asset may reach their optimum potential. Even in its purest form, diamond is an exceedingly complex mineral. The cutting of a rough diamond into a glistening gem requires not only an extensive knowledge of the stone’s chemistry, but also excellent vision and technique skill. The manipulation of such a rare and valuable work of nature as a pink diamond is entrusted exclusively to the most distinguished experts is the trade. Though a diamond is crafted with the knowledge that it will be observed in a particular orientation (what is referred to as face up), all aspects of its three dimensional structure must be accounted for in optimizing that directional appearance. While the shape of the rough often suggests the diamond’s final shape, the art of cutting is as much an organic process as it is a balancing act; a cutter must maximize weight retention while creating a stone with the best possible color and clarity.
