My goal is to exceed your highest expectations.
What a wonderful set of genuine pre-ban elephant ivory jewelry designed and sold by Ming's of Honolulu, Hawaii. This set is in the Orchid pattern and includes a necklace, bracelet, brooch and earrings. The ivory orchids are set in sterling silver.
The necklace has 3 ivory orchids and the sterling silver chain is a little over 18 inches long. The largest orchid is 1 1/4 inch north/south and 1 inch east/west. It is missing one of the tiny "twists" on the end of a petal. The 2 smaller orchids are 1 1/8 inch north/south and 7/8 inch east/west. The necklace has the black (partial) Ming's signature on the back.
The bracelet is 7 inches long and has 6 ivory orchids. 1 5/16 inch north/south and 1 inch east/west. One of the orchids is missing one of the "twists" on the end of a petal. The bracelet is hallmarked "STERLING."
The brooch is 1 1/2 inch north/south and 1 3/8 inch east/west. It is marked with the rusty red ink which means it is older than the other pieces.
The earrings are sterling silver and have screw back closures. The ivory orchids are 1 1/4 inch north/south and 15/16 inch east west. They have the black Ming's signature. The posts are hallmarked "STERLING."
The pieces come in an original Ming's jewel case designed in black and gold with an Asian motif. I purchased these pieces as a set at an estate auction but I believe that they were collected over time.
Ming's store in Honolulu operated from 1940's - 1990's. Ming's jewelry is quite collectable.
Ivory cannot be shipped internationally. Because of California law, ivory can neither be bought or sold by California residents.
