“In ASIA, GREEN is closely linked with JADE and recalls it’s value and desirability. Green represents plants, crops and spring. It is the colour for birth and youth and implies exuberance and enthusiasm.” said Debbie O'Connor, branding specialist in her writing on the meaning of the colors in culture.

PHOTO Story
This suite of 18 arhats, followers of Buddha, was carved from Siberian green nephrite (type of jade which has different chemical composition from jadeite)

The color distribution in top-quality Siberian green nephrite can be extremely even, as seen in the absence of black dots in these figures.

A Well-Carved White Jade Ruyi #玉如意 from China Beijing Yin Qian Shan Auction on 2015 Dec 11th
#北京印千山國際拍賣

#RUYI #如意 means `as one desires,' and is associated with expressions such as jixiang ruyi #吉祥如意, “may all your good fortunes be fulfilled.” These ruyi scepters were known to have been commissioned by Qing emperors either to commemorate birthdays or to be bestowed as birthday gifts.

These well-carved scepters are adorned with a pomegranate fruiting and peonies flowering double-palm shaped bergamot, an important symbol in Chinese art and culture as it represents several auspicious meanings. With its numerous seeds, the pomegranate is a symbol of fertility, particularly for male children, as the word for “seed” shares the same pronunciation as `son.' The word for bergamot (foshou) is also a pun for `good fortune' (fu) and `longevity ' (shou) combined.

A JADEITE AND MULTI-GEM CLIP BROOCH, BY INT’L ACCLAIMED HONG KONG JEWLERY DESIGNER #WALLACECHAN #陳世英

Designed as a coloured diamond-set dragon, flying through two jadeite hoops of intense emerald green colour and high translucency, enhanced by diamond and pink sapphire flame, mounted in titanium and 18k white gold, largest hoop diameter approximately 30.2 mm, thickness approximately 7.0 mm, 10.0 cm long

Sign Wallace Chan
Accompanied by report no. KJ59592 dated 11 April 2011 from the Hong Kong Jade & Stone Laboratory stating that the hoop is natural jadeite and no polymer is detected

Christie’s Auction in May 31, 2011

Sold for HKD $2,060,000 (USD $160,000)

米開朗基羅的一場啟發
(摘錄於佳士得:珠寶藝術界風雲人物專訪)

外界都喜歡稱 陳世英為Wallace Chen,他在香港成長,於17歲時創立個人寶石雕作室,一直努力不懈鑽研各種雕刻寶石的方法,由他獨創的世英切割(Wallace Cut)享譽國際珠寶界,他在2012及2014年參與巴黎古董雙年展,成為該展覽歷年來的首位及唯一亞洲藝術家,2016年更是他忙碌的一年,他於三月參展於TEFAF歐洲藝術博覽會,並將於六月去到倫敦參與Masterpiece藝術展,以及在維多利亞和艾伯特博物館(Victoria & Albert Museum)舉行演講。精湛工藝、豐富創意和非凡成就得來不易,是經過多次試驗和失敗加上累積知識而煉成,而這一切可以由年輕時說起。

1973年,還是學徒的Wallace無意中被一本書籍所啟發。「當時我經常流連二手書店,某天我發現了一本印有『M』字的外國書籍,拿出來一看,是米開朗基羅(Michelangelo)的作品集。書內展現的雕塑所流露的肌理和光影交錯為我帶來衝擊,它與我所認識中國傳統的圖騰和葫蘆等雕刻方法截然不同。後來祖父去世,他的遺體被埋葬於基督教墳場,墳場裡有很多西洋雕刻,就這樣我開始接觸西洋雕刻。」與此同時,對知識的渴求也令Wallace不斷受到啟發。「創作理念來自知識和經驗的累積,所學到的東西會隨時間成為記憶並不知不覺地沉澱,當某些物質或材料出現時,靈感便會從這些記憶中湧現出來,成為一種創作意識。」

靈魂與寶石溝通

在Wallace眼中,寶石擁有生命,透過與寶石溝通他能找到一個切入點,領略材料和顏色的配搭。「創作很互動,創作者要與萬物交往。珠寶雕刻也是一種溝通,當中包含結構對話、形態交換, 顏色與顏色之間互相爭奪它的嬌艷,這一切都會引發我的好奇,讓我去研究和探索。創作時我只有一個理念,就是盡情展現寶石的顏色、特性和形態。」為了展現寶石最璀璨的一面,他努力研究各種雕刻技巧,如花上了兩年半時間鑽研世英切割(Wallace Cut)。

The HINDUSTAN JADES!

3 pitchers from “Treasures from across the Kunlun Mountains” exhibition collection of National Palace Musuem of Taiwan.

。🐉🐉🐉。🐉🐉🐉。🐉🐉🐉。

Islamic culture has had a strong influence on Asian culture. When Islamic jades (Mongol Jades) were introduced to the Qing court, Qianlong Emperor mistakenly believed that these objects, carved with inlaid flower and leaf decorations, all came from a South Asian region called "Hindustan."
(Hindustan is the title of the northern India in the Qing Dynasty).

All jades with flower and leaf inlaid with gold and semi-precious stones offered as a tribute from Xinjiang to the Qing court were subsequently given the name "Hindustan jades."

According to historical records, thirty years of Qianlong of the northwest frontier military and has made advantages, the tribute from Khotan, Yarkand and Everfount to enter the palace, the Hindustan jade is one of them.

。🐉🐉🐉。🐉🐉🐉。🐉🐉🐉。

痕都斯坦玉器(亦稱伊斯蘭玉器),是指清宫中收藏來自西域以外的阿富汗及土耳其等玉器,由于是清高乾隆宗皇帝不詳其與印度巴基斯坦國度地理上的差異,就命名統稱為“痕都斯坦玉器”

La Mini D de Dior with Lavender Jade and Jadeite!

Dior’s #LaDdeDior watch is meant to be a masculine watch with feminine elements. And this presumption was arrived at by Dior, based on the thought, “A woman who borrows the watch of a man so that she always thinks about him…”, which resulted in the watch line, La D de Dior, in 2003, inspired by the 70s and from the outset including jewellery-making materials such as jade, diamonds and ornamental stones.

INVIGORATING Jade through the use of Leather in a contemporary way.

“An Emerging Creature” was a project that #AnesKim of South Korea created in 2013 invigorating jade through the use of leather in a contemporary way and with a wild combination of materials.

The project used the relationship between the wearer’s skin and leather ‘skin’ to create a unique jade jewellery collection.

Anes expresses that although formerly popularly used in Asia, jade becomes less appeals to Anes’ own younger generation. Responding to the surrounding impressions on jade – such as reminding Westerners of China and the stereotype of jade as an old- fashioned gemstone for the Asian younger generation. This makes “An Embodying Creature” an absorbing challenge as a designer expressed.

The shape started from a fern, as an organic iconographic form used in Chinese jade craft during Ming and Quing dynasties, then evolved into an emerging living creature in spirals, undulations, curves, volumes, flows, rhythm and dynamism.

Jadeite is popular with Chinese collectors and enthusiasts because of its correlation with the imperial family.

Vickie Sek, CHAIR; JEWELRY AND JADEITE DEPARTMENT, CHRISTIE'S explains that, unlike diamonds that follow a universal grading system, jadeite is difficult to evaluate. Its value is based on colour and translucency, and comparisons with other pieces.

Jade Burial Set sewn with gold wire. (金縷玉衣)

Jade is a durable material that can survive burial for thousands of years, and is therefore linked in Chinese belief to immortality.

In the records of Shi ji, the Han emperor Wudi believed that drinking dew and jade powder from a jade cup conferred longevity. He built a device for collecting dewdrops in the Jian Zhang Palace. The Baopuzi (‘Master who Embraces Simplicity’) by Ge Hong (c. 320) records that ‘When gold and jade are inserted into the nine orifices, corpses do not decay.’

金縷玉衣 又稱珠襦玉匣
主要出土與中國漢代文景時期,是漢皇帝及高級貴族去世之後穿的殮服,外觀相似於人體形狀。玉片已身分地位以金、銀、銅線串聯。當時的人相信死後穿玉衣可以保持屍骨不朽。
