    Nice! Is it bad taste here to ask how much a stone like that costs?

    I'm usually not much of a jade wearer, but I thought my heirloom jade bangle and vintage 14K gold diamond bangle with blue enamel went well together as stacked arm cuffs, and also matched my emerald studs in floral diamond earring jackets.

    And here are some close-ups of the earrings and bangle from another day.

    Thank you for your sweet words, @Bluegemz! You just made my day! I'm usually an "earrings girl", but I think it's time to bring my bracelets and bangles out for a spin! I previously associated jade with dated fashion, but having seen some really luxe and modern jade pieces recently, I'm planning to reset some of my grandmother's jade pieces.

    Thank you @renwea! To be honest, I don't really know what's good or bad jade by sight. Whatever knowledge I have about colour, translucency, treatments and enhancements are merely theoretical. The apple green jade bangle was passed down from my grandmother to my mum, and now it's mine because my mum had put on some weight and it no longer fitted her :D. I also have another heirloom bangle that is whitish green with dark green patches.

    It's the one on the far right. This close-up shot shows the carving relief.

    New pretty necklace which matches my ring quite well. I'm also wearing my e-ring (of course) and the halos go quite well together

    Good match.

    Oh you could get a long white leaf jadeite piece for a pendant to go with your carved earrings!

    Don't tempt me! My neck didn't itch today and I was thinking "Hmm wonder if I can rock a jade pedant."
