These old estate Chinese earrings are rare. They're hand-carved from ONE piece of genuine jade into THREE interlocking hoop rings. The degree of difficulty of this craft is so high, it's referred to as 'the Devil's work'.
The jade is also the highly-valued 'moss-in-snow' color which is mostly white with bright green veining, patches, or spots.
The jade rings hang from solid 14K yellow gold screw-back posts. Each one is cut-through with Chinese symbols of good luck and good fortune.
The earrings measure 5/8 inch across the widest ring. They're 2 inches long with gold post. The earrings weigh 11.2 grams.
To the eyes, these natural jade earrings are flawless. But after inspecting them with a strong magnifier and 'feeling' them for any blip in the smoothness, we did find a repair on one of the rings...photo 4 - left earring. It's the top ring and when hanging, the repair is hidden by the second ring so you would have to look for it. It's so perfectly fixed that we would easily have missed it were it not for our intense scrutiny for this listing. This repair is factored into our price but will go unnoticed by admiring eyes who know rare old jade when they see it. Circa 1920s.
