10 Jade Rings To Put on Your List
1. Karatgem Jewelry Jade Ring
When you look at this jade ring from Karatgem Jewelry, the first thing you should notice is the unique mix of different jade hues (green to be more specific). The fact that it doesn't contain any other material than jade was another thing we noticed. And combining the 2, you start to see just how beautiful the ring is.Read more
Still, looks aside—the ring purely carries the definitions of jade, as it's made entirely out of the stuff. In other words, the ring should be given to any girl you know who's constantly working herself to exhaustion.
The meaning here isn't necessarily that you're wishing her good luck. Rather, you've been staying up-to-date with their activities, so you notice the amount of work they're putting in. So giving them a gift like this shows that you've got their back and you acknowledge their efforts.
In the case of your daughter who just graduated from college, this is one of the best rings that you can ever give.
2. Morgan & Paige .925 Sterling Silver Jade Ring
The ring uses a genuine oval-cut jade set just right in the center of a band made from sterling silver. What we like about this awesome mix is that it portrays the perfect balance between looks and the build quality.Read more
Here's what we mean: the use of sterling silver is indicative of the strong build quality. The fact that there's an 18 x 8 mm jade at the top is just the literal cherry on top!
3. Natural Blue Jade Ring by Caprixus
We just had to put the ring on the list. The Caprixus ring uses a blue jade instead of the usual green—which is actually the highlight here. You remember when we mentioned a jade meaning creativity and success, a blue jade takes a softer approach.Read more
Blue jades mean peace and serenity—which is definitely far different from the earlier definition. Nevertheless, while the meaning is quite different, the application literally remains the same. Blues jades can be given to anyone in your life and in any situation.
The band is actually sterling silver despite that attractive gold hue. We think this was done to keep the cost budget-friendly. What you see on the surface is 24K gold plating.
4. Palm Beach Jewelry 14K Yellow Gold Jade Ring
The Palm Beach Jewelry piece is definitely a looker with the 14K gold Greek key design that runs around its surface. Other than that, the ring comes made entirely out of jade (green hue this time around). There are no other materials on the option, which gives it a clean, almost minimal look.Read more
If you know any girl who loves designs like this, this is a choice to give to her. Shows you put it in a lot of thought before choosing a gift that you feel she'll fall in love with. The fact that it has a few sweet meanings just complements the whole thing.
5. Lux Genuine Green Jade Eternity Ring
The Lux jade ring is entirely made out of genuine green jade. But unlike the previous ones with the same kind of build, this Lux eternity ring is braided which changes the game considerably. But other than that, you won't find any other materials on the ring.Read more
As expected, we very much prefer this look since the neatness makes it an open template for other pieces of jewelry.
The price is something you just have to accept since it comes in at just below $100. But as it's the meaning that counts a lot, it's woprth every penny.
Tip: get a size one point higher than your own.
6. Ice Gems Sterling Silver Jade Filigree Ring
Ice gems jade ring is a pure combination of jade and sterling silver and it forms a gorgeous ring with a price tag that's budget-friendly. The ring is no slouch when it comes to built quality. Jade is durable and likewise the metal used in making it.Read more
If you're looking for the perfect gift for someone, this is such a great chopice! Still, we advise that whoever you settle on, buy a pair or just select any other ring that catches your fancy on the list. Why? We usually buy some of our products in pairs. One for us—the other for the lucky dudes who made the effort to really know us.
7. Seta Jewelry Jade Bamboo Ring
Before we start the review of Seta Jewelry's very beautiful ring, you should know that this list doesn't necessarily say this is the 7th best option. Instead, it's your choice—and our favorite.Read more
The good looks make sure it complements any item in your wardrobe.
As expected, the price does need some getting used to if you're on a tight budget. Still, it does look really good, especially when it's on as it almost sits flush with your finger.
8. Natural Nephrite Green Jade Ring by Caprixus
The Caprixus ring is a lot flashier than most rings on this list. It's a handcrafted ring that's made out of 24K gold vermeil, an excellent alternative to gold.Read more
The ring has a natural cabochon nephrite green jade sitting at the top. The jade sits flush with the gold itself and it creates one of the most well-built jewelry pieces that we've seen at just under $50.
That said, the ring actually makes use of sterling silver as the base metal. The 24K gold vermeil that you see on top is simply present to add a bit of luster to the ring.
9. Palm Beach Jewelry Pearl and Green Jade Ring
The Palm Beach Jewelry ring is pretty straightforward in design. It features the use of genuine jade which makes up the ring itself and 10K gold sitting just below an 11 mm sized pearl at the top.Read more
It's definitely feminine, though it does have a vintage jewelry vibe to it. This ring is a bit on the thick side, and for women who have petite fingers, this might not be the best option. But for anyone loving bold jewelry, it's a perfect choice!
10. NOVICA Light Green Jade Cocktail Ring
Carefully and artfully, the base of this ring is designed like a tong holding up the oval green jade. And that creates an odd vibe that feels old. To that, do you know anyone who loves jewelry that looks vintage? This is the perfect pick!Read more
The use of 925 Sterling silver makes it more than tough enough to resist most things. To make the process of gifting easier, the ring comes in a jewelry pouch.
In ancient times, the nephrite jade was common in China. It was the first of these types of materials to be found and used. Now the deposits are rare and depleted due to overuse. That said, in the past, they were used in the design of ornaments and beads. From there, they gradually became revered and were used to carve out artworks and decorations.
Around 3,000 BC, jades became a favorite gemstone in China,and they referred to it as a 'royal gem'. The stone's polish was attributed with purity, the hardness represented intelligence, the angles mean justice, and its sound when struck is music.
There is a Chinese proverb to emphasize the importance of jades. It says 'Gold has a price, Jade is priceless.'
Generally, there are three main types of jades. They include the Jadeite, Nephrite, and Greenstone. Only the jadeite and nephrite jades are considered real. If any brand tells you it uses either, this is how you can be sure.
Throw the jade into the air and see if it weighs more than it looks. If it does, it's probably genuine.
Tap the stone against a hard surface and notice the sound it produces. For genuine stones, it makes a clicking sound. But for ones that are fake, it'll probably sound like beads.
The last test is the scratch test. Jadeite, for example, is very hard and will scratch glass. But in the case of nephrite, you may have to avoid this test altogether since this type of stone is quite soft.
These are basic tests, so don't expect them to be foolproof. Still, if these tests are done right, you should be able to measure to a certain extent whether or not the jade is real.
