    Specific Gravity of Grade B Jadeite

    The better material are usually not available in larger sizes but bangles are actually cut in concentric circles if the material is intact, so larger sizes can be found up to well over 70mm and 80mm. E.g if a 52mm is carved out, add the thickness of say 6.5mm 1 side=13mm for both sides of the...

    My Burma Myanmar gemstones :)

    It's mostly grey and black in the day. I call it my drama bangle :o) it's a piece you either like or hate and creates a statement when worn.

    Switched out to this icy light pink lavender bangle. It's a 59.5 and looks pinker in daylight than artificial lighting!

    My Burma Myanmar gemstones :)

    Oooh I'd love to see your great aunt's bangles. Mine are from 59.5mm and even 67mm. 59.5mm to 61mm I need a plastic baggie and Vaseline jelly to get them on. Inner diameters that is.

    My Burma Myanmar gemstones :)

    Vaseline + plastic bag or plastic glove method. Removing at night when it's cool and hands least swollen! I have bruises so I rotate between both hands. Just wear what I like? I save the cheaper ones for my holidays. Like this I wore to Europe this month. Light colour so easy to match.

    My Burma Myanmar gemstones :)

    Hello sweetie! Erm yes I have about 40 jadeite bangles now but don't really feel like showing them on PS anymore, esp when I disagree with most of the "suggestions", "recommendations" etc which are kinda repetitive. But I'm uploading 2 I just received since you asked about them :) hope you are...

    Jade bangle question

    It just means it's likely from a mountain deposit rather than from river bed deposits. The latter are usually considered finer with better/high translucency. Price is commensurate with that :)

    Jade bangle question

    Can't really tell from the photos and for a supposed antique, the polish/wax is still very good. You will need to send it to a lab to check it out whether it's Type A or otherwise. While this has a glutinous base, there is green throughout and the vibrant steaks are good sunny greens. At...

    Icy’s CS adventures

    Purple is totally TDF!!! The right type of 红紫 rather than 蓝紫 I like! Can't tell from the photos and colour accuracy but the greens are more 阳绿 than 帝王绿 (imperial) viewed on my phone. Personally prefer the sunny greens myself to imperial and much more affordable too. You've inspired me to wear...

    My Burma Myanmar gemstones :)

    This is a bold, striking and lustrous jadeite bangle that makes a strong statement. However, it is still soothing to the eyes owing to the very fine grain and shine. #stillonajadeitebanglebend

    The majority of mine do fluoresce that much yes. I also have a couple of small ones that don't. :) Enjoy!

    Switched out to this light green jadeite bangle today. Not a strong green, but it soothes the frenetic soul. TGIF!

    Loving this lavender and green fine grained jadeite bangle.

    My Burma Myanmar gemstones :)

    This illustrates how lighting can show up more translucency in jadeite. My budget black flower piece with its best portion showing looks even icier than the pricier ones!

    Thank you. Waiting for more (if possible) before setting :)

    Hehe I'm sure 90% of the posts must be comments! It's been a 4+ year journey coming to an end. Thanks for reading all this time!

    My Burma Myanmar gemstones :)

    This is one of my budget jadeite bangles that is icy with what the Chinese call black floating flowers. I love the iciness and the rather even pattern of the floating flowers. The jadeite is surprisingly lustrous too. The flowers are actually very dark brownish green rather than a pure black...

    Please Show Me Your Emeralds

    Love the simplicity and structural elements to the ring! It conveys a very grounded feel that is ageless and timeless.

    Please Show Me Your Emeralds

    Thank you! This is one of my favorite rings currently and even though the emerald isn't as big as many others here, the ring gets a lot of compliments and looks when worn out :).

    Hk show experience: recession looming or a lot of new higher quality gem mines?

    These mobile payments make it even more convenient than sacks of cash! Hehehe. Methinks they are exchanging black for white through these purchases at the gem fairs coz no records, mostly. Sure thing! Been buying quite a number and they are SO WORTH IT. Friend sent 4 or 5 to NGI in Sg to...

    Apparently they don't like us....

    I'd go ahead with the meetup for 1. Gems and 2. Ask why exactly because I'm curious and 3. Get him recount his PS interaction experience.
