This pretty nephrite jade is a Maine estate item and dates from the late Art Deco era. Jade from the Deco era came from China and was very popular in the United States. The necklace is in excellent condition with each jade bead being individually knotted. The beads are uniform in size measuring 10mm in diameter. The necklace is 17" in length and is secured with an unmarked clasp which is gold filled, common for the time period. The total weight of the necklace is 50.6 grams on my jewelry scale. It drapes beautifully on the neck, a pretty piece of vintage, untreated Chinese jade to add to your vintage jewelry collection.
