In the upcoming sale, GWS Auctions will present jewelry and accessories with an emphasis on jade items. A jade Buddha pendant is one of the featured lots. Made from Type A jade, this pendant is finished with an 18-karat white gold mounting and diamond accents. In Chinese culture, jade is considered a lucky stone. Often known as the “Stone of Heaven,” jade symbolizes prosperity, success, and good luck. Among the jades, Type A is considered most valuable, only worn by leaders and emperors as a symbol of power. Another jade item highlighted in the auction is a Type A jade bangle with a semi-transparent “glassy” pale blue-green color.
Another highlight is a Cartier Trinity necklace. Jean Cocteau, a French designer, writer, painter, filmmaker, poet, and friend to Louis Cartier, designed the commercially-successful Trinity collection in the 1920s. Cocteau’s collection features three precious alloys situated inside one another, each carrying a particular meaning. Rose gold conveys love, yellow gold is a reminder of fidelity, while gray gold symbolizes friendship. Register to bid for these items online by visiting GWS Auctions.
