Jade with the classification "Jadeite" is considered especially in China as one of the most desirable gemstones at all. It is believed here that jade brings health, success and a long life in harmony with nature - it is not uncommon for good jade to be weighed out with gold. A life without a piece of jade jewellery is still unthinkable in large parts of the Chinese population. Jade is supposed to convey the feeling of balance in life, as well as bring harmony, beauty and happiness into the consciousness of the wearer. An oval cabochon of polished jadeite of a beautiful deep green colour forms the focal point of this ring. The ring itself is made of light reddish gold and thanks to its fineness stamp we can say that it was created in China. Twelve beautiful diamonds are grouped around the years as an entourage and fine piercings adorn the under-cadence of the golden ring. The ring was probably forged in the 1920s, we discovered it in southern Germany. A detailed appraisal from the German Gemstone Appraisal Society comes with the ring and confirms the naturalness of jade - harmony, beauty and happiness in wearable form.

China, the "Land of Smiles", has always fascinated Europe with its millennia-old culture. It is impossible to imagine European art of the last centuries without chinoiseries, Chinese arts and crafts, especially porcelain, were a status symbol at all European courts and a sign of discriminating taste. At the beginning of the 20th century, when long-distance travel became easier, trade relations could be expanded and the Middle Kingdom moved closer, genuine Chinese arts and crafts became affordable for the middle classes. There are many examples of the intensive reception of Far Eastern art by European artists in those years. The close connection of French Art Nouveau with the art of the Far East through the mediation of Siegfried Bing in Paris is famous.
