The strongest market for jade — both jadeite and nephrite varieties — is China. The bi, the donut-shaped Chinese symbol for eternity, is a popular design for jade jewelry pieces. This bracelet features a translucent, very pale green jadeite bi with a blue enameled Chinese character in the center, flanked by enameled bat accents, set in a silver-gilt hinged bracelet.
