    Lol donuts just look so complete. The last one has good lustre hence the wet look reflecting light.

    Polishing does help usually if the jade isn't too rough. But carving it again to improve it is best left to the carvers. It could be done to rectify small flaws but whatever it is, they also run the riskof cracking/chipping. Though I suppose if from a large enough piece there may be more room for error.

    When the green is this fresh, it's hard to get tired of it and out of rotation.

    Wearing my red jadeite pendant for the first time after it got set recently.
    Paired with orangey yellow jadeite goldfish earrings and my first pink sapphire ring set in Burma.

    The goldfish are from the same piece if rough but vary nevertheless.

    Thanks! I keep staring at the photo too. I have another pair of leaves in a different green and shape. Will probably reuse this design too!

    Now I have been away from jade, but this cab is a heart breaker!

    Thank you. I got this cab about 2 years ago from my jewellers. It's pretty big and the quotes I've gotten to set this were all on the high side. Until I took a chance and sent it in to this jade setter that does not charge for a mould. This ring belongs firmly and solidly in the us1250 and under thread!

    I don't really do cute, but I could not resist what is probably the best carving of a dolphin I've seen so far. At least to me!

    It's bluish green jadeite but has strong saturation, translucency, icy, great shape and looks like a dolphin :)

    Being set into a simple ring right now.

    It's been a while since faceted stones.
    Next possible purchases :)

    Finally jumping on the emerald bandwagon, which is really an extension of green stones!

    The pear is 1.79ct only but faces up big and well cut with brilliance and no window. Lab memo says Columbian.

    Square step emerald is 2.04ct, lab did not give origin.

    Both minor oil

    Not your usual jadeite but these remind me of ink paintings, very scenic and lyrical. They are on the small side but ok for pendants.

    Note how 1 has horizontal and the other, vertical streaks. Highly icy and with splashes of green too.

    Will design them to look like paintings!

    They are fairly rare this icy and nicely streaked :)

    They remind me of this painting I bought from a leading Myanmar pioneer artist years ago. When he was still fairly affordable!

    I want to see your jewelry box. With such big bulbous rings, how do you get your rings to fit? :P2 Just saying you have many huge rings, and I can't imagine them fitting into MY jewelry box.
