Antique carved celadon nephrite jade archer's ring dating from the Qing Dynasty, 18th/19th century which can also be worn as a pendant necklace. Nice fatty luster and silky feel. Good condition with one tiny nick on the edge. This style of ring was originally worn by archers to protect the finger and later became symbols of honor worn by scholars on the thumb. It is a US size 13 but can also be worn as a pendant when worn on a cord. Weighs 42.7grams. Measures 28 mm tall. Neck cord included on request.
