A True Treasure from the Orient this 30" Long Cinnabar Necklace is a fantastic color combination of red and black cinnabar. Each Cinnabar bead is intricately and deeply hand-carved with the lotus flower. The black cinnabar beads measure 10mm round and the elongated red cinnabar beads measure 16mm Long x 8mm wide.
There are round black glass beads & antiqued gold tone Metal Beads between each cinnabar bead. The gold tone filigree clasp is in perfect working condition.
(Please see the photos for the true color of the necklace and all of the finely carved details).
The necklace is strung with perfect tension and drapes fluidly. The Cinnabar is not worn or faded at all, but rather the image is sharp and distinct. The cinnabar gemstone usually comes in a fiery red color, so this necklace that features the jet black hue is less common and more rare.
Carved Cinnabar, a traditional Chinese art form, is beautifully represented in this necklace. This unique vintage necklace adds a splash of color and a dash of the exotic to any outfit!
