    Some pics of jade decorative objects I took at the museum. Most of these are Chinese in origin. It was the Lazzadro museum of lapidary art.

    These were done very many years ago with no sophisticated tools, no CADs, no computers, sheer human dedication and skill.

    What a marvel :)

    Black Chinese jade vase several thousand years old from the Art Institute. This reminds me of a Frank Lloyd Wright piece. He did get much of his inspiration from Eastern Asia.

    Jadeite is probably my DH’s favourite gem.
    Just to share these 2 rings he got me.
    I do appreciate the beauty of jadeite but I don’t know why I don’t seem to wear them often?

    Is it maybe because these are big cabs, and therefore heavy?

    Yes, they are definitely heavy but I don’t seem to hv weight issue with my 13-14mm SS pearl rings? Lol :D
    I would be wondering what outfit & what color to match with jadeite?
    I am probably too used to wearing diamond & pearl jewelries :confused:
    Well, I promise I shall try =)2

    ... a cup size version in Canadian nephrite was my beloved penholder for many years, until lost to the wrath of times; RIP & NTS for a new one.

    Haha the key is to stop worrying about matching and just wack a ring on. That's the motto I swear by.

    My rules are now basically this: NEVER leave the house (except for school pick ups and drop offs plus dog walks) without at least 3 rings on. :lol-2::P2:mrgreen2:

    my two most love icy jadeite pendant and ring :)
    The pendant have black moss alike. Usually is green moss. With bats carving. In Chinese, bat symbolises good luck.
