This one of a kind necklace is made with a piece of green jade that is hand carved with a dragon on the top and a pig on the bottom with the Chinese character for long life in the middle. The jade pendant is 1 3/4” long by 1 1/4” wide. It is carved on both sides. The jade is suspended from 15 mm faceted jasper roundel beads in the variety of colors that jasper comes in naturally, including the same dark green as the jade.
