A Chinese style bracelet of 8mm green jade beads alternating with 7mm gold pearls, hand knotted on beige silk.
This collection has been designed exclusively for the British Museum by Caroline Haelterman from the Real Pearl Company. Extensively researching ancient gemstone jewellery, the range has been inspired by the intricate jewellery discovered by archaeologists. Jade gemstones, as featured here, were a symbol of wealth in Ming dynasty China.
The pearls used here are of the freshwater cultured variety. The matching necklace to this bracelet is also available to purchase.
