Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift for your beloved mom?
Beyond penning a heartfelt card and sending her fresh flowers, you can treat your mother to timeless jewellery. And Hong Kong-based Dejade Jewellery, long recognised for its exceptional jade pieces, has some wonderful pieces that would warm your mum’s heart.
Jade has held a very special place in Chinese culture throughout history. Other than the beauty that it emits, jade is believed to bring good luck and protection to its wearer. There’s also an old Chinese saying that goes: “Gold has a value; jade is invaluable.”
Michael Lo, director and co-founder of Dejade Jewellery echoes the same sentiment, “You can put a price on gold, but jade is priceless,” just like a mother’s love for her children.
Dejade’s latest Katherine Collection consisting of earrings and rings, born out of a creative collaboration with independent designer Katherine L from Los Angeles. “When the inherent uniqueness of a jade piece is matched with bespoke contemporary design, a true masterpiece is created,” says Lo, making the jewellery pieces in the Katherine collection an ideal precious gift for that special woman in your life.
This collection is inspired by the artist’s joy of motherhood and incorporates a charming fusion of elegance and playfulness, making each of the pieces in the collection wearable and collectible works of miniature art with each piece carefully handcrafted with originality in mind.
For the earrings, two brilliant green coloured jadeites anchored by a similarly spectacular triangle-shaped piece at the bottom – set with round diamond spacers and accented by brilliant-cut diamonds – form a beautiful drop ear jewellery that would make mom a head turner at any gala event.
The jade and diamond ring features a centre piece of translucent rectangular curved jadeite with brilliant-cut diamond shoulders – definitely an eye popper on mom’s finger.
For jade lovers, jewellery from Dejade is worth coveting. Long recognised for its exceptional bespoke pieces featuring jade from Myanmar, where the world’s finest jade come from, Dejade’s involvement in the green gem stretches over five decades and spans two generations, starting from humble beginnings in 1971 when Lo’s father, a jade craftsman, cut and hewed jadeite into jewellery pieces from his store on Canton Street, popularly known as “Jade Street” by locals.
Lo, now a master in jade himself, learned his craft by observing his father and today, Dejade boasts a team of highly specialised jade craftsmen, well versed in the intricacy of cutting and selecting the finest jade. Dejade’s jewellery is so exquisite and valuable, they are often put up for bidding at auction houses such as Poly Auction and Bonhams.
The Katherine Collection is now available at DEJADE JEWELLERY at Shop 102, Lee Garden Two, Causeway Bay and Shop 110, G/F, Man Yee Building, 67 Queens Road Central, Central, Hong Kong. You can also learn more about the brand via their Instagram and Facebook.
