  3. Thanks so much! I feel a great sense of peace with this bangle and it’s so comfortable too! @Cyanide Rose , I didn’t expect that the ring would match so well - a delightful surprise! @jadeitebear , also notice that about the gray part! @2boys_jademommy , the dark side near the green caught my eye too!

  4. Thank you 2boys! The Olmec bangle is one of my favorites. Wearing today: the beads are little black jadeites a really nice seller from Russia sent as a gift with an order. It was actually earrings but I turned them into a bracelet because I do not wear dangling earrings.
    Have a nice day, Jadies!

  6. Wearing jadeite today. I haven’t worn lemonade in a long time. I love her bright tone on such a yucky day ☺️

  8. Hi JB, thanks so much! It seems so much bigger now with lemonade being a 61 and Pi being 56.5. I tried and I actually got lemonade on my left wrist. So excited I’m hoping it will be ok there, because I wear a tennis bracelet on that wrist. I’ll see soon enough, I’ve never worn a bangle on that side. Just silver and gold bracelets normally, so I’ll see how it goes :smile:
     
  9. Hi jadies, I really really like the color and the translucency of this bangle, however, I find it a bit too thick on me... I do prefer slimmer bangles... what do you guys think?

  10. The one on the front is my preferred thickness... but the translucency is not nearly as good as the one that I have on now(the one on the back).

  11. Good afternoon Jade Experts.
    I'm new to TPF though I've lurked around the Forum (esp at the Bottega Veneta threads) for a while now.
    I was raving to my mum about the collective wisdom (she doesn't quite comprehend the term 'crowd-sourcing') of the internet, and on her behalf, I'd like to ask if you know more about the kind of jade that she has stashed away. She neither wears nor likes them very much, am afraid.
    They belonged to my great-grandmother and grandmother who have since passed on and all we know is that some of the pieces date back to the turn of the century (e.g., the hairpin) when the family moved from China to Singapore. Some were re-set in gold in Singapore (1930s-50s) and she recalls my grandmother using the term 'feicui yu'.
    That's all we know.
    Hope you can help.

    Our thanks,
    Doncaster42 & Mum
    Melbourne, Singapore

  12. Mrsblue I think your bangle looks beautiful on you and not too thick at all. I find slimmer bangles and princess bangle tend to be more feminine while the thicker bangles are more modern and make more of a statement. What is the difference in millimetres between your two bangles? And actually now I realize I’ve answered your question based on width and not thickness. You were referring to the thickness/ height of the bangle....In any event I think the bangle proportions look great on you

  13. How lovely and special your mum’s collection is! That hairpin is definitely from a different era. I’ve never seen anyone wear a jade hairpin in real life before. Those jade earrings with the dainty pearls are gorgeous and I also love the jade link bracelet. Thank you so much for sharing your mum’s jade from so many generations.
     
  14. Thank you @2boys_jademommy
    Mum is happy to hear your comments. She's getting on in years and last wore some of them in her 20's when my grandma was still alive.
    It's the first time in 50+ years they've seen daylight.
    Would anyone know from sight via these pictures (sorry that some were blurry) if it's true that these are indeed feicui yu - I assume jadeite, not nephrite?
    Thank you in advance.

  15. I really like the bangle you are wearing as well. It looks great on you. I must say, I personally find princess bangle that fit a bit snug more comfortable. In d shapes I like them much thicker and a bit bigger in terms of fit. The princess bangle is pretty but I am a fan of translucency as well. Choosing one bangle is so difficult, I envy Jadies that can pick a bangle and wear it permanently :smile:
