    I love your old cab, it’s got 0 ego but it is full of magic. The best of the best!

    Roadtesting the lavender cab. Fine grain, has water, even colour, icy and is a pinkish lavender rather than the more common blue lavender. Pink comes out more IRL. Very happy with the purchase price and quality wise. The setting cost more ;-)

    In various lights

    I use velvet ring trays. The earrings go on plastic stands. Will take a sanitised shot when I'm back. Currently on the road :)

    Plain and simple yet has such presence. It looks moonstone-like in this setting too. Feeling conscious about the size today but will post a few shots when I bring it out over the weekend!

    Thanks for the appreciation :)

    Got distracted today. 0.94ct of alexandrites with 0.23ct of diamonds.

    Green in daylight, bluish purple in indoor artificial light sources. I've not tried candlelight :razz:

    Hurried pics as I got this on the move and am still out and about.

    Ahghhhh! Both of these rings are so darn yummy! Did you get both?!
    They are truly magical but something in the smaller chubbier stone truly speaks to me!
    One on each hand would look just fabulous :kiss2:

    The bigger one I got it a couple of years back and happened to be wearing it today, when I chanced on the smaller that's slightly moodier with a stronger purple base. Haha I usually wear a ring on each hand but can't to juggle the phone on the left!

    Latest poison and also at long long last. Lavender jadeite bangle in my non-standard size!

    Will be counting the weeks till I get it!

    Really nice bangle. Love love love the color. Don't you have some pendants that match?
    I feel your pain about non standard sizes. I'm hard pressed to get my hand in a 61. I had to give up looking for solid bangles knowing that my size is rare, plus I'm not sure I've finished expanding! Every day I wake up to a different ring size :eek2: My newest theory is to buy everything a full size larger and use the plastic thingies to make them fit. :lol-2:

    I have a love hate relationship with bangles because I have a small hand (XS/XXS gloves), fleshy palms and thickish wrist and wherever gets over my hands will sit high up on my forearm. So technically everything will be big if it fits! But I do so want a lavender since greens are galactically priced! This bangle is also about a cm big for me but I can live with that.

    I know what you mean about sizes. It happens to me on the plane even my fingers and feet swell so whatever fits before flying has to move down to a smaller finger on the flight and half a day after I end.

    You are right that it's better to go up in size than too small!

    Me too :) this is strictly for colour. Not for grain, water and texture which would be lacking! Tradeoffs.

    What you expect to pay for a bangle of this kind of jade?

    I haven't looked at anyting for ages & only recall seeing 'ink' like patterns in pieces with very good water & astonishing prices; I am falling bahind on jade news.

    Honestly these come in different translucency. Mine are icy with minimal white. The opaque ones with minimal black splotches but plenty of white are very affordable. I just got such a 67mm bangle for a guy pal for well under US$100. Icy ones I've not seen as yet!

    A few more items from the setters. I've also sent them my square emerald to set to see how they fare with gemstones.

    CAD for my emerald ring with 0.02 and 0.01 melee. They said 0.03 would be too big.

    Yokdee is terribly terribly overpriced for average quality jadeite.

    Just saw this blue icy bangle on livestream. Around 10,000rmb.
