    That's what I thought too, LOL :twisted::twisted:

    But my mum just scolded me for wasting money.. Ah, Chinese mothers!! :):) I'm glad that I'm now old enough to understand and read between the lines. I think it's a generational thing too. Although my mom will happily spend $200 on a haircut which I don't understand.. :razz:

    Mochiko, She may have scolded you but inside she was very happy. Mothers are very happy when their children think of them. It shows that she is appreciated. What a lovely gesture. :appl:

    I added an icy white recently to my jade bangle collection. Here it is in the middle of this picture.

    Thank you Melody, I find that every jade is beautiful. Each has it's own character to love.

    I love seeing everyone's jade jewelry.

    My Mom loved jade. Here's her heart pendant. I don't know if it's real jade or not. What do you think these inclusions are? They are really more of a blue in natural light.

    My friend took the picture with her macro lens and a flash (to get the flaws). The background is supposed to be black.

    Sorry I can't tell you what kind of inclusions these are as I have not seen any like it before. Maybe someone else can give their idea of what it is. :think:

    What can I do with this ring? The stone is very translucent, but I don't like the setting.

    Thanks. The design is very pretty, i like the loop over lines with diamond. Only wish I can find somebody willing to take the stone off from the old setting without break it.

    Here is the Red Pendant that I bought from Mason Kay. It's at my jewelers now waiting to be set as a pendant. Can't wait till it is done which will be in a few days. I will share it when it is done. Mason Kay has such beautiful jades.

    I'm sure she's happy maybe she just don't want you to spent a lot of $$$ for her, my mom always spoiled me with a gift but when I gave her something she said better I save that $$$ and buy something for my self

    Thanks three of you for nice comments.

    The stone on the right is very small, but the setting somehow made it bigger.

    Sorry, I never came back here after posting. I don't wander CS often. My ring was my grandmother's. I don't know anything about what type of jade or any treatments. Any idea where I can get that checked out? It's a hefty cabochon.

    My grandma believes in jade changing colors from wear, but "tricks" them by sticking em in the vegetable bin in the fridge before she wears them. She swears they get more green from the heat of your body, so if the fridge makes them extra cold, it will feel more of the temperature contrast.

    Silly lady. :lol:

    Hey JKP, great to see you here. Went to pick up my Red Mason Kay pendant that I just got set by Alice. Here it is. Hope all is well with you.

    Madelise, It is really wierd because I just bought an icy white bangle from my favorite jeweler and it now is changing to lavender. Really hard to believe but the change is really happening. I have just had it for about a month. Lots of people say that it can't happen but it is really happening to me. Maybe grandmas really know best. LOL :appl:

    Madelise, Mason Kay is able to check it out for you. Why don't you contact them. They have all the right equipment to test.
