Jadeite pendant Year of the Dog garnet necklace
Double strand of rhodolite garnets with a lovely grayed jade or "white jade", called so because it is a very pale celadon grayish green with subtle swirls or matrix of light color. White jade is actually very common, not to be confused with the more expensive (and rarer) Imperial jadeite. This pendant is smooth polished and waxed to preserve the natural beauty of the stone. I chose it to go with the garnets because the color of this particular jadeite pendant perfectly complemented the purplish red of the rhodolite garnets.
Dimensions are: 1-7/8" x 7/8" (3.6cm x 2.3cm).
The carving is of the Chinese Zodiacal sign for the Year of the Dog. Recent years for this sign are: 1958-59, 1970-71, 1982-83, 1994-95, 2006-07. Typically, the year begins in January or February and goes through to the next year. Wikipedia has a page for Year of the Dog.
The garnets are faceted and are 2mm in size.
All metal is sterling silver.
The necklace is adjustable from 16" to 19".
