Very Large Chinese Jade Carved Lock Ruyi Form Pendant Necklace in Shades of Russet Necklace with Squirrel

The focal point of this necklace is the very large pierced and carved ruyi or lock shaped centerpiece. It measures 3 3/4" x 3 1/4" and is 3/8" thick. The carving is of floral motifs with a squirrel towards the bottom center.

It has been strung with a perfect selection of carved cinnabar, agate, and unusual multi-sided glass beads. The varying shades of color from the cinnabar and agate beads make an absolutely earthy and richly warm combination and perfect compliment to the jade piece. The gold-tone rings from which the ruyi is hung used the existing openings so nothing was done to change the jade.

It is strung on a very strong metal wire and attached to a gold-washed chinese box clasp. It is 23" in total length.
