A Life-Enriching Heirloom
Asprey’s new Imperial Jadeite collection, one which sees British artisanal heritage, rich Chinese folklore and a mesmeric geological marvel come together as a holy triumvirate. Bracelets, bangles, pedants, rings, broaches, necklaces and elaborately carved sculptures all feature in a collection that is replete with ancient symbolism. The stories behind these pieces are as emotionally stirring as a material whose unsurpassed beauty have made it one of the most lauded gemstones in history.
As a creator of life-enriching heirlooms in materials from silver to crystal via china and leather since 1781, Asprey has now created a collection made of Imperial Jadeite: an even more elevated form of the mineral, whose molecular structure and resulting hue – a beguiling, translucent green – matches up to the quality certain Empresses would have insisted on in centuries past.
