The outer surface of the bracelet is engraved with intertwining floral branches in intaglio. It is made of highly transparent mild green jadeite known as "high jadeite". This pair of bracelets used to be worn by Empress Dowager Cixi.

Bracelets or armlets were worn by both men and women in ancient China. In the Tang and Song Dynasties, they became ornaments unique to women, and wearing bracelets was a fashion statement for women in the Qing Dynasty. The bracelets worn by the Qing-Dynasty court ladies were made of a variety of materials, including jade, jadeite, agate, scented wood, amber, bodhi seeds, gold, silver and all sorts of inlays. Bracelets made of jadeite were the most precious.
