The first concubine had two sets of jade jewelry that she used to wear in front of her chest. Here is the first set. It consists of 20 components in 3 materials: jade, gold, and glass. The formation is very complicated. From the top to the bottom: a Double Dragon Pei, two jade rings, a whirlpool-veined disc with triple phoenix pattern, a glass bead, ten gold beads, five jade Huang. No other set of jewelry in the tomb is more elegant than this one, except that of the Nanyue King.
