The bracelet consists of a thick braided silk band adorned with a large jadeite jade stone carved in high relief and two smaller jadeite jade beads. The flawless carving of the jadeite jade is a stunning example of the expertise of Chinese stone cutters, who were revered for their meticulous and detailed work with a variety of stones, especially jadeite. Since the Victorian era, wealthy Europeans had been custom ordering jewelry from China as Chinese jewelers were considered some of the best in the world. The process of ordering, making and receiving a Chinese export piece could take months at a time, so pieces like this bracelet were very expensive and highly desirable. The larger jadeite jade stone was carved by hand to depict what appears to be birds under a tree or bush in high relief, the condition of the stone a testament to the technique and skill of the Chinese stone cutter who created the piece. Semi-translucent, the stone has a Grade A, untreated apple green hue with a mottling of white throughout, as well as an internal matrix of lighter and darker green shades which is illuminate when light filters through the body of the stone. There are two additional white jadeite jade stones attached to one end of the bracelet and they dangle elegantly against the wrist when the bracelet is worn. There are two small holes drilled into either end of the larger jadeite jade stone, serving as bales and attached to the band of the bracelet with brown silk string. The band itself is made out of brown silk string as well which was braided by hand. When worn, the jadeite jade high relief carving should face outward with the silk band sitting comfortably against the wrist. A classic example of Chinese export jewelry from the Art Deco era, this bracelet would make a valuable addition to any antique jewelry collection.
