This rare antique Chinese pendant made of 14 karat gold and two adjoined rings expertly carved from a single piece of
tricolor (yellow, green, lavender) jadeite! Circa 19th century.    
Seller: I am selling these for an elderly Chinese gentleman who was a renown collector and purveyer of Chinese works for
many years in New York City and has recently retired.  The pieces are all guaranteed as described.

Buyer: I believe the two adjoined rings linked as one like two lovers never separate as their hearts link as one. It is a symbol
of traditional Chinese love. The artisan well conceived, designed and made such a rare unique jade pendant. It is both
classical and modern for the ancient charms that still allure; it is highly collectible with potential added value; The artisan
selected the jadeite  to allude the Yin & Yang of life and beauty of typical Tang dynasty tricolor (yellow green lavender) the
ancient Chinese appreciated in aesthetics and show Ming style elegance in craftsmanship and also use the way of  rich
imaginative, affecting and Chinese traditional cultural art to express Chinese traditional love and best wishes. 'Two rings
adjoined as one, two hearts linked as one.' symbolizes 'Two lovers meet, love as firm as jade, never give up and separate.' .
It is made of an old Burma jadeite (Grade A) with tricolor (yellow, green & lavender) a s most of hard jade comes from
Burma after Ming dynasty. 我认为这是件上等的缅甸老玉,因为自明代之后中国大多数硬玉都是出自缅甸。

Jade is natural gem stone found in mountains or riverbeds. True jade is generally classified into soft jade (nephrite) , so-
called "ancient jade" and hard jade (jadeite) . Jade produced in China is mostly soft jade (nephrite). Most jade used in
Chinese history is nephrite. Hard jade (jadeite) is mostly from Myanmar (Burma) after Ming Dynasty (about 600 years ago) or
closed province of Yunnan, China. Generally speaking, jadeite is more popular and valuable than the nephrite after Qing
dynasty in China. Most popular colors of jade are green, white, yellow, lavender and red. Jade in China is still seen as
containing properties that promote good health, good luck and protection. Carved ritualistic and ornamental objects
continue to play an indispensable role in many aspects of Chinese life. They are an eternal symbol of an ancient civilization.
