Striking in its colour and scale, this one-of-a-kind necklace was crafted by artist Ram Rijal, asked by Mimi Lipton to create a timeless piece. Hand made links of 22 karat gold, reflect the unique cuts of five large pieces of Chinese jade. Few stones rival the beauty and majesty of vivid green, imperial jadeite. Revered by emperors and worshipped by the people, jade is more than a stone to many, and inextricably woven with the history of Chinese culture. Chinese philosopher Confucius understood that the beauty of Jade laid in its varieties. He extolled the virtues of the gem: “Jade is precious not because it is rare, but because the quality of jade corresponds to virtue. (…) Jade is crystal like, glittering and translucent as a white rainbow, like the white clouds of heaven, which harmonize the heavens and correspond to heavenly principles.” Objet d’Emotion presents the 'Chinese Chapter' of Mimi Lipton's private jewellery collection on 1stDibs. Natural treasures set in 22 karat gold and mementos of bygone days. …#collectorperish #objet_d_emotion #mimilipton #valerydemure #jewellerylover #jewelrycollector #oneofakindjewelry #privatecollection
