It's been a while I bought something to set.

Took the plunge yesterday when I saw a good icy green in a half cylindrical form which isn't that easy to come by in better quality jadeite.

Slightly over 23mm long. Stay tuned to know what and how I'm designing this to be :)

The almighty jadeite ring lol. Setter's photos, no closed backing. Thought it turned out well as a statement piece that doesn't break the bank. 18k white gold and 0.007ct melee.

Waiting for a couple more of my stuff to be set before they ship together.

Woot woot! Setter's photo and looks luscious and sparkly! I finally have a decent set of lavender jadeite earrings.

Lovely, restful lavender color, and it’s lovely that the texture does not compete, but allows the color to ‘flow and glow’. Congratulations!

This is my personal favorite, more blue than pink! Sigh...now I really want some better lavender earrings to go with my fav lavender pendant.

@Burmesedaze yummy earrings! :cheeky:

Just curious, is there some symbolic reason you placed the green jadeite on the bottom of the earrings?

Haha it came as a set and those though minuscule are good icy greens that glow. No symbolism but thought instead of putting it at the top where it's more noticeable, to stick it at the bottom as a subtle accent.

Just received my package of bangles. I picked this for my colleague's fiancee and was taking photos for him.

This illustrates what a chameleon jadeite can be lol. Under white LED and indoor daylight.

I love the translucent quality of all your pieces - I'd honestly take any one of them! There's something about that jadeite ball, like looking into another world. Plus, I wouldn't be able to keep my hands off it!

Thank you, that's high praise coming from you :)

The jadeite bug is irresistible! Having established rapport with different sellers over time helps with scoring small wins or bargains :)

Also another project in the works. This is a small icy cabochon, not what I'd usually go for, but it's a double cabochon and rounded at the bottom too. Im curious to see how the light return effect would be, hence splurging a tad more on the custom setting.
