19th Century Chinese Jade Archer's Ring Lined in 14 Karat Gold

About

Hand carved of the highest quality jade, this 19th century Archer's ring was likely worn by a gentleman-scholar in Northern China. Traditionally, Chinese archers wore these rings to protect their thumbs while drawing a bowstring. Over time, these jade rings became fashion accessories and a decorative display of status. This stunning jade ring, hued a pale green color with currents of light brown, has been recently lined with 14-karat gold by a contemporary artisan, adding a modern finish and narrowing the interior diameter to ring size 8.5. All jewelry sales are final. No refunds or exchanges.
