JADE OF YESTERYEAR COLLECTION INSPIRATION
This is inspired by my personal collection of jade that I have acquired over many years from all around the world. Since most of the jade carvings in this collection are over century old, it makes it very difficult to replicate. A lot of the art of jade carving has been lost through out the years so it took us a long time to contract a master Jade Carver to complete this collection. This collection features replicates of old jade carving and sterling silver pieces mixed with gemstone and CZ.
I am Chinese born in Taiwan raised in N. Africa and educated in the United States. I spend most of my vacation time through out Europe and Arabian countries. I adore jewellery and spend over 30 years of collecting jewelry especially jade effects. I find this collection especially fascinating because of the bridge between east and west—antique Chinese jade fashioned in western style. It is very classic and yet as timely today as they were at the time the original pieces were made. It is a way of wearing art and history.
Jade is a stone that has been used by many cultures and civilization. Its natural variation of color adds to the character and charm of each piece. Jade is used as spiritual ornament from Chinese Neolithic era to the Mayan culture.
It is adored by noble men and woman as luxurious objects Ancient Chinese cities were traded for a piece of Jade.
I remember 20 years ago, finding few of these pieces in antique houses and auctions were such a joy but today if I ran across one it is such serendipity. I am sure this limited collection of jade of yesteryear will become a collectible in years to come.

When I opened the package and looked at it, it was not a WOW moment. The more I examined it the more it did turn into WOW. The detail on this ring is beautiful and intricate. It is not a flashy ring but it does have some sparkle from the CZ's. The jade is beautiful and very well finished....no cracks or chips, etc. It takes on an antique look and style.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

MOST PLEASED WITH THIS PURCHASE. I WAS BUYING RED JADE (WHICH ALWAYS TURNED OUT TO BE ALMOST BROWN) SO IN CHANGING FOR PURPLE - I HIT IT RIGHT ON. THANKS TSC FOR ANOTHER FINE PIECE OF JEWELLERY.

Beautiful ring. The lavender jade is a nice medium shade and the silver work is exquisite. It's a little top heavy, but not enough to make it uncomfortable. If you're looking for a ring that has tons of glitter, this one is not it. However, if you're looking for a ring that has substance and nice workmanship, for sure this is it. I find it beautiful. The cz add just a subtle amount of that little extra.

This ring has to be one of the most elegant rings I've ordered from the Shopping Channel. Everyone has commented on how it looks very 'antique'. I will definitely purchase other rings from this collection in other colours. Wonderful - even my husband is impressed with it.
