Small Carved "Phoenix" Oval Burmese Jadeite Bangle Bracelet 51x46mm Fits Like 48-49mm (JHBB582-C)
Precious small oval shape jadeite bangle bracelet with carving in the deep green area. The size is 51x46mm and 16.5mm wide. To figure out what the size is like in a round jade bangle add both the diameter sizes (51+46=97) and divide by 2. You can go up or down a mm or two because it's easier to get on the oval shape over your knuckles. The jade carver designed this bangle for the carving to be in the darker green color and the smooth part in lighter green. The carving is of Phoenix. symbol of Woman and "Yin", with lotus leaves (health, power, assertiveness).
This is older jadeite, purchased in 2003 during our shopping trip in China near the Burma border. The jade carver does not use commercial quality jade stone for export, he carved for local people, therefore the small size and significant carving. The value in this jade bangle bracelet is the carving, and the deep green color, and the combination. Actual price would be much higher than what is listed.
