18th Century Chinese Jade Archer's Ring

About

Hand carved of the highest quality jade, this 18th century Archer's ring was likely once 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 dark green color with flecks of light and dark, has been recently lined with sterling silver by a contemporary artisan, adding a modern finish and narrowing the interior diameter to ring size 9. All jewelry is final sale. No refunds or exchanges.
