Artistically rendered, this translucent jade pendant is carved with a trailing vine of trumpet flowers and leaves. Seeking out the color in the stone, the artist carved in such a way that the green appears on the leaves and the apricot in the center of the trumpet flower. Please see the second backlit photo, which shows the true beauty of the carving.
The pendant measures 2 1/4" from the top of the attached bail to the bottom (the jade alone is 1 3/4" tall) by 1 1/4." Total weight is 15.3 grams and the bail has been assayed as 14k gold. In excellent vintage condition, this exquisite carved jade pendant would be beautiful suspended from a strand of jade beads, a gold chain or a simple cord.
