This necklace and earrings set is made from beautiful graduated smooth rondelles of chinese Serpentine, also known as Soo Chow Jade, but is not true Jade. The beads are both opaque and translucent and have a waxy luster. The colors are very earthy ranging from red to brown to green and yellow. The larger Serpentine beads are separated and highlighted by saucer shaped corrugated beads and round beads made of 14k gold fill. A pair of matching earrings completes the set.
14K Gold-Filled (14K GF) beads are made by bonding a layer of 14K gold with high pressure and heat to base metal and then shaped as desired. Industry standard requires that the quantity of gold be at least 1/20th of the total weight and the Karat measurement must be marked.
Length: 23 inches.
Beading Wire: 0.19"/49 strand clear-coated stainless steel professional quality beading wire with 14K gold-filled crimps, crimp covers and wire guards.
Bead size: beads range from 17 x 20 mm (0.66 x 0.78 inch) to 6 x 10 mm (0.23 x 0.4 inch).
