A vintage jadeite Buddha pendant, with a great 14 Karat gold double jump ring and bail, on a mirror link 14 karat gold chain that is adjustable up to 20 inches! The adjustment is simple, smooth and easy. The mirror link really sets of this apple green to celedon green and pale lavender Buddha. The lavender is extremely subtle.

This Hotei or laughing type Buddha is very well and smoothly carved, with a big broad smile, fat belly, and big ear lobes. This is untreated, natural gem A grade jadeite. The distribution of the color and the carving really bring out the detail; this is first rate jade.

Please note: only jadeite and nephrite can legally be called jade. Many try to pass off serpentine and other green stones as jade. Moreover, jade comes in several varieties of quality, some types treated with dyes and filled with polymers. A grade jadeite, or natural jadeite, is untreated. The only treatment is usually the application of some beeswax to aid in polishing, which won't harm the piece.
