Jadeite and diamond ring, 1920s. What we colloquially refer to as ‘jade’ is actually two entirely different stones: nephrite and jadeite. Nephrite has been used for millennia and is found throughout the world, but jadeite, known in China as feicui, was only discovered in modern-day Myanmar in the 18thcentury. It immediately came into fashion in the Chinese imperial court due to its variety of colours, which range from an almost bluish white through to lavender and bright emerald green. The bright green variety, coloured by chromium, is the most famous and sought-after variety, and particularly saturated examples were known as ‘Imperial Jade’. This beautiful cabochon of jadeite displays a homogenous, classic apple-green colour, and its 1920s navette-shaped mount was designed around it, perfectly framing it with a millegrained border of sparkling antique circular-cut and single-cut diamonds.
