Stunning Jade & Diamond platinum drop earrings c.1930s
Jade is a semi-precious stone that ranges in colour. Translucent jade is more highly valued than opaque jade. Jade is often cabochon cut. Stones with imperfections are usually carved. Two different minerals are known as jade: jadeite and nephrite. The Chinese have prized jade for thousands of years and regard it as having medicinal properties when worn or ingested as a powder.
