A symbol of great wealth, the wearing of bangles in China can be traced back more than 2,000 years. The Chinese believe jadeite is a gift from heaven and so the shape of this highly important and superb bangle means it represents the ‘Circle of Heaven’. It is a highlight of Sotheby’s upcoming Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite sale (03 April, Hong Kong).
