A wonderful vintage 14k yellow gold and spinach jade beautifully carved in a floral pattern.
Jade has been used as a sacred stone for centuries* and was used for serenity, wisdom, balance, and things associated with spiritual practices.
The stone is a dark shade of green, it is carved with two flowers nestled within large leaves.
The jade is perfectly polished to a high shine which shows in the reflection (white spots) in the photos.
It is simply set in a rectangular six prong setting with a rim of gold around it. The back is very solid and slightly domed, it has a delicate engraved design.
The pendant measures 1&1/8" by 13/16", the jade alone is 1" by .75".
The pendant hangs from a 19" gold chain (also 14k) and is attached in a way that it stays centered.
Very well made and in excellent condition, no damage or visible wear.
Marked 14k on the back with a hallmark of HK, possibly for Hong Kong.
Total weight is 12 grams.
A delightful 14k yellow gold pendant necklace with lovely carved spinach jade.
