Carved Jade Saddle Ring with Gold & Diamond Frame

$23,000

About

Hand-carved from a succulent slab of natural Burmese jadeite jade, this rather astonishing ring is among the most unique and extraordinary jade rings in my collection. Jadeite with a humble body color of mottled greenish-brown has been gifted by nature with a streak of the finest bright emerald green. The lapidary artist has carved this impressive ring to maximize the dramatic impact of the exquisite green area by placing it forward as the "saddle" face of the ring. What surprises me -and what I cherish about this ring- is that the vivid emerald-green area was not merely cut away and then set into a precious metal ring with diamonds. Instead, the precious green area was preserved in context. The extraordinary together with the rather ordinary. And that is a strikingly rare and beautiful thing. An 18k white gold "scaffolding" has been cleverly constructed into which the carved jade ring may be easily inserted. This, then, transforms the ring by giving it a more traditional precious metal housing. A row of clean, white small baguette diamonds is set into the white gold rings top and bottom for just a little sparkle. I believe the ring dates to the 1980s. The ring measures 8 3/4 or 9 on my ring mandrel and it obviously cannot be resized. So if this ring fits you, you are in luck in so many ways. This beautiful ring ships with a certificate from the GIA stating that the jade is natural color with no indications of impregnation.
