The tradition of Koreanmarker jade carving dates back to neolithic finds along the Namgang river basin in Gyeongjumarker. Jade rings and accessories were worn by the higher classes of society, especially women, from the three kingdoms period and reached their peak in the Joseonmarker dynasty, the golden age of jadework. Korean jadework often includes buddhist motifs, cicadas, and peanut-shaped good luck talismans on the small scale, as well as larger-scale architectural pieces.
