The origin of gold-inlaid jade can be traced back to the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period. In an accidental opportunity, it appeared as an invention in ancient China. But since then, such technology has been passed down. Nowadays, we can see a lot of gold-inlaid jade price, using different jade, its price is different, such as gold-inlaid jade ring. Even 18K gold and 24K gold are affecting the price of gold-inlaid jade rings.
Legend has it that Bian He Demeiyu, a native of Chu, was dedicated to King Wen of Chu in the Spring and Autumn Period, and was carved into Bi, which is called "Heshibi". This winter is warm and summer is cool, and mosquitoes and flies are not near within a hundred steps. It is a valuable treasure in the world. After Qin unified China, "He Shibi" was acquired by Qin Shihuang. The first emperor was made to carve it into a jade seal. The eight characters of "being ordered by heaven, being longevity and everlasting prosperity" written by Li Si were carved with five dragon patterns, which were exquisite and exquisite. The first emperor was always loving and regarded as a God object. After the Han Dynasty destroyed the Qin Dynasty, the "Heshibi" fell into Liu Bang's hands. Liu handed it down from generation to generation as a national seal, which has been handed down for twelve generations. By the end of the Western Han Dynasty, two-year-old children were in power and Tibetan jade seals were in Changle Palace. When Wang Mang usurped power, Wang wanted to coerce Empress Dowager Xiaoyuan to hand over the jade seals. The Empress Dowager refused to comply. She took out the jade seal and threw it to the ground in a rage. She dropped a corner of it.
When Wang Mang saw the damage to the jade seal, he sighed and busily recruited skilled craftsmen to repair it. The craftsman was smart enough to think of a magic trick of using gold to set the missing corner. After repairing, he became even more brilliant and dazzling. So he nicknamed it "gold inlaid jade seal", which is the origin of "gold inlaid jade". Unfortunately, this rare national treasure "gold inlaid with jade seals" later changed hands several times, to the era of the Three Kingdoms did not know where to go.
However, the production technology of gold-inlaid jade has been inherited, and from the court to the people. There are various gold-inlaid jade ornaments and even gold-inlaid jade chopsticks among the dignitaries. Since ancient times, there has been the saying that people have eyes but do not know gold and jade. It is a metaphor for being short-sighted and ignorant.
If this thing still exists, it must be worth a lot. But for most people, the price of modern gold-inlaid jade rings is acceptable.
