The jades are special – originated in Myanmar and was hand carved in China. Although jadeite deposits are found throughout the world (Guatemala, Japan, Russia, and California), Burma remains the primary source of best jade, hidden in the mountains where geography, soil, and climate all come together to produce the finest. The sourcing of the Jade from Myanmar and carving it in China began in 1780’s with Emperor Qianlong, who extended China's jurisdiction into northern Burma, calling it the “Imperial Gem”. Jade was therefore used for the finest objects and cult figures and for grave furnishings for high-ranking members of the Imperial family. They were also carriers of Chinese traditional arts and literature and were representative of its user's personal aesthetic sense and their social status, especially the imperial courts.

Throughout diverse cultures and histories, dragons are woven into a rich tapestry of symbolism. In Chinese lore, they symbolize power, good fortune, and rulership over the elements—Fire, Water, Earth, and Wind. As the fifth of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals, the Dragon is associated with the Earthly branch symbol 辰, pronounced chen. Often depicted chasing a flaming Pearl, it symbolizes energy, wisdom, prosperity, power, and immortality. In Greek myths, dragons intertwine with heroic quests, such as Heracles' encounter with the Ladon. Dragons serve as multifaceted symbols, representing storms or regality, villains or protectors. In East Asian culture, the Dragon, as a totem, is a powerful guardian and guide, symbolizing good luck for those deemed worthy. LAdV embraces this universal allure, blending tradition with modernity to craft expressive, stylish, and playful dragon-themed designs.
