Nephrite is a small Pembroke Welsh Corgi whose fur is amber-colored with white paws, inner ears, muzzle, and chest. He has green jewel eyes. He wears a blue checked flat cap and a silver beaded necklace with a green diamond-shaped jewel.

Charm Form

Nephrite's Charm Form is orange and oval-shaped with white decor. There is a large green diamond in the middle, surrounded by four smaller diamonds and a green heart at the top.




In Jewelpet (anime), he is the partner of Akira Nanase. Nephrite appears to Akira to rid him of Diana's curse that caused him to become harsh to the kids he was teaching to play basketball. Like Ruby, he wants to see Akira and Rinko get together.

In Jewelpet Kira Deco, he's a "cleaner-for-hire" (a parody of an assassin). He's an old friend of Coal and tries to help him defeat Ruby and her friends. However, he falls in love with her and ends up turning against Coal. In the end, he cleans his mind of all memories of Ruby so that he won't love her anymore.

In Jewelpet Happiness, he is known for jumping into Ruby and Chiari at the exact moment the beam of light is hit from the Small Moon of Happiness. While Sapphie is working on her latest invention, the Happiness Shot, Nephrite develops a crush on her and is willing to work alongside her.

In Lady Jewelpet, he's one of the dogs used to test the Petit Ladies' skill at dog-walking. He's partnered with Momona, to whom he's rude and unhelpful at first, but he takes a liking to her during the course of the episode. In the past, he did the same test with Lady Diana; his cynical attitude came from him witnessing Diana run away with Alto and leaving Luea behind.

He's a minor character in the other seasons, usually with Io and Chite.
