Fine jade pendant set with a carved type A jadeite leaf and accented with diamonds in 18k.

This deep green jade is hard to come by, for dark green jadeite becomes lost if its green is not lush.

The carving is not realistic, but a symbolic shape with contours to display the rise and fall of the jade’s color.

It may be close backed, as such jade is frequently set (ie. to rely only on light from the top), but this does not mean the jade is lacking.

In fact, this type of deep jade is very striking and in this particular pendant, with enough material to show the stone’s texture.

Because it is big enough, at 3.5cm by 2cm, the texture and color together propels the jade leaf surreally.

Photos give you a sense of how the jade darkens and brightens very sensitively. In one tilt, half the pendant lights up.

There isn’t enough antique or vintage jewellery produced in jade that we can hold comparison to. Jade in this abstracted Art Nouveau form is modern, but enduring, and perhaps a new classic.

Marked "750", equivalent to 18k gold, on the bail.

The vintage platinum chain necklace is solid separately.
