Most people refer green jade when they talk about jade gemstones or jade jewelry. While green jade is the most popular color for jade, the gem stone is infact available in a few other colors too. Red, yellow, white and even brown are some other jade gemstones that you could come across. Though it seems like fairly common gem stone, there are many interesting things about jade that many jade jewelry buyers are not aware of. In this section we will discuss important features about jade, the information will help you choose the right jade gemstone ring when you are shopping for one. Firstly you should know that the name jade refers to two stones that have similar properties. Jadeite and nephrite are both called jade, and this is accepted even by gemological experts. When you talk about durability of a gem, the hardness of the stone becomes an important feature. The hardness of jade can be measured at around 6.5 on a rating of 10. This is ofcourse on the Mohs scale that is used to measure the hardness of gem stones. You might believe that the 6.5 hardness makes the stone in your jade gem stone ring only moderately durable but, reality is much better than that. The internal structure of jade is made up of fine interwoven fibres, this adds toughness to the stone. You therefore should have no worries about the durability of the stone in your gemstone ring. To give you a better idea of the toughness of jade, here is an ancient fact that you should know. The first applications to which jade was put did not take place in the gems and jewelry sector. In ancient times, people made weapons like spear heads and even tools from jade. It was the toughness of the jade gem stone that made it useful in these applications.
There is one aspect of jade gems that most jewelers and gem providers choose to keep silent about, this relates to the treatment of jade gemstones. The interesting thing about jade treatments is that, more than 90% of the jade that enters the gems and jewelry markets is treated in some way or the other. You can therefore presume that the stone in your gold or 925 silver jade gemstone ring is treated, we now discuss this topic. Much of the jade that is mined is not of perfect gem quality. Cracks, pits (holes), color zone, mixed colors and even white (colorless) patches are common in natural rough jade. If a gem manufacturer had to limit his cutting output to good quality jade pieces, he would end up with a very few of them. Another fact is that good quality jade in natural form would yield small sizes, something that might not impress many fashion and jade lovers. Using large amounts of rough jade to get tiny amounts of good quality jade gems, would also imply a high price point. In a market that is price sensitive for various reasons, high prices translate into low demand.
To satisfy a market that does like jade gemstones and moderate the price at the same time, gem manufacturers have researched ways to treat jade gems. A common process used is to dye jade to various colors, this gives the stone a more uniform color spread. Another benefit of dyeing jade is that, you can derive colors that are otherwise rarely found in natural jade. This is the 'secret' behind jade rings with yellow, lavendar or even red jade gems. The fact is that natural jade rough can be found in green, white, black, brown, red and even yellow color. But the rare occurence of these jade colors in natural forms spikes the price beyond most budgets. Closely related to dyeing jade gemstones is the process of bleaching jade. To get the maximum effect of the colors used to dye jade, the stone is first bleached to make the natural color as pale and as uniform as possible. The lighter jade color derived by bleaching allows the applied (dyed) colors to be more clear and uniformly spread across the gem. If you are looking for a jade gemstone ring with a moderate price tag in gold or 925 silver but, require a gem that has a fine color all across the stone or, need a large jade gem - bleached and dyed jade is the way to go. Just to put the price into perspective, a 10x8mm oval bleached and dyed green jade gem could cost around 15 U.S$ to 30 U.S$ per piece. Now if you insisted on getting the same color appearance in an untreated green jade stone with the same size and shape, you could pay around 500 U.S$ to even 900 U.S$ for just the stone. At Kaisilver your custom jade ring can have either of the two gems. However we do admit that most of our jade jewelry buyers, request the bleached and dyed variety for reasons of price.
The importance of discussing the treatments used for jade is higlighted by the fact that, most of the jade gems used in jade jewelry are treated. There is one other process with which jade gems are treated and this needs to be understood well as, increasingly larger volumes of this type of jade is being supplied by Chinese jade manufacturers. There is a technical term called 'impregnated' jade for such jade, we will explain that in simple language. We did mention above that much of the rough jade that is mined has cracks and pits (holes) present in the stone. While bleaching and dyeing can resolve color related issues, the treatment cannot help with the cracks and holes in the rough jade. Until recently such junk quality rough jade was discarded or, made into cheap statues and objects. The rise of the Chinese low cost manufacturing sector brought up some interesting options for the junk jade leftovers. Resins and probably silica compounds are used to 'fill' up the cracks in the stone. Technically we would say that the rough jade is impregnated with foreign substances, this is what is meant by impregnated jade. It is possible that the impregnation treatment is combined with dyeing. What is important to understand is that, impregnated jade gems are very cheap and are generally sold by weight. In an ideal situation we would suggest that, you do not go for a jade ring that has such a gemstone. However if you are looking for a very cheap jade gem stone ring, this might be one of your options. Coming back to the price comparison, a 10x8mm oval jade gem that is impregnated should cost you around 2$ to 5$ for the piece.
You now know about untreated jade and treated jade gemstones, let us put this into the pricing perspective of your gold or 925 silver jade gem ring. If you wanted a jade gemstone ring with an untreated stone, there are two constructive suggestions. The first is to go for a moderately priced untreated jade gem but, be willing to accept a few flaws in color, color spread and possibly find a few fissures in the stone. The extent of the flaws, will depend on the size and color of the jade that you need. Talking about fissures (cracks), it would be best to avoid jade gemstones that have surface reaching cracks - such a stone could crack further and split even with moderate impact. If you wanted a fine untreated jade gem stone ring with little or no blemish - be prepared to pay a premium price for the ring. The price would ofcourse be influenced by the gem size, shape and color. Now if your gold or sterling silver jade gemstone ring is to be purchased on a limited budget (this is true for most of us), then consider going for a dyed jade gem. While we do not recommend going for a jade ring with an impregnated jade gem, make sure that your jeweler clearly informs you if such a gemstone is being used in your ring.

Mens Jadeite Jade Rings
Jade is a generic term that describes two gems, nephrite and jadeite. Despite the fact that nephrite jade was known to humans for few thousand years, it is jadeite jade that is highly sought after today. It was around 3 to 4 centuries ago that the Chinese came to known about jadeite jade from Burma (Myanmar) and they fell in love with the gemstone. China is one country that defines the demand levels for jade and the Chinese can never get enough of the gemstone. The world today considers jadeite jade to be much more desirable as nephrite jade, this has pushed up the prices of jadeite. Most jewelry buyers expect natural jadeite rings to be too expensive especially if, their requirement is for a natural untreated green jadeite ring. Very little of the commercial quality jadeite reaches gem markets without being treated, most of it is dyed to give the gems a better color. At the same time, as knowledge about gemstones increases, the preference for natural and untreated gems keeps growing. The ancient traditions and customs for which jade is worn even today, is another reason why buyers prefer their jade rings to be untreated and natural. Kaisilver sources moderately priced natural jadeite from vicinity of the gem mines in Northern Burma. Reasonably priced men's gold and silver jade rings can be ordered with untreated or dyed (treated) jadeite from Burma. The design for your jade ring for men can be yours or ours ... more.
