condition

Colour and Clarity: According to the Hong Kong Jadeite Jade Testing Certificates, the jadeite beads are natural, with no indications of impregnation, known as Type A jadeite jade. Please refer to the reports for more details. In our opinion, the jadeite beads are well matched and highly translucent, of vivid, well-saturated green colour, with fine texture. Jadeite beads of well graduated sizes, and of this quality in colour, translucency and fine texture is very rare. Upon strong illumination, some jadeite beads have natural whitish inclusions, not noticeable and not affecting the overall beauty of the strand. The centre diamond on the clasp is accompanied by GIA certificate stating that it is of H colour, SI1 clarity. In our opinion, the surrounding diamonds are of similar colour and clarity. Condition: In very good condition.
