We think of jade as being green but yellow jade is a valued thing of beauty as well.
This vintage necklace features a carved Chinese symbol that we think represents 'Longevity' or at least some kind of good fortune. The pendant is carved of a semi-translucent Nephrite jade that looks like mutton fat which is a very desired kind of jade. The color is pale yellow with an internal cloud of white. Pendant measures 1 7/8 inches across by 2 3/8 inches long with the carnelian and sterling silver beads.
The necklace chain has peanut-size opaque yellow jade beads that are smooth polished nuggets. The end chain is sterling silver.
The necklace measures 20 inches end to end and can be clasped at 17 to 19 inches for your desired length. The lobster clasp is marked 925. Necklace weighs 50 grams.
Under magnification, the hand-carved symbol shows a couple of tiny fleabites at edges which is common to hand-carved pieces.
Overall in very good vintage condition. Circa 1950s/60s.
