Weight: 17.2 grams Size: Total length not including bail: Jadeite: 1.6 inches length and width by 4.4mm thick Gold: 14k yellow gold, not marked, tested and confirmed Age: Estimated Mid 20th Century
A stunning genuine and natural jade jadeite pendant, a stunning green and white. I have also shown photo with lighting to show the translucency of this gorgeous jadeite. As you can see by the photos the jade has the fibrous crystalline structure. All of this is all internal within the jade, there are no surface cracks, chips or breaks. As by the measurements given above you can see this is a large statement piece. A bit more green than appearing in photos, this is not the pale celadon green jade.
This piece depicts a different symbol on each side which I have not seen before and I was unable to determine their meaning though I am still researching. I welcome email if you happen to know!!
The gold work is is intricate, beautiful, thick and heavy with normal light surface wear as one would expect from a piece of this age.
I would estimate the age to be mid 20th Century though the jade may be much older as it was common for very old jade pieces to be reset into fine pieces.
