Vintage jade nugget necklace with carved jade lotus pendant Year End BLOWOUT SALE.
This is an older vintage jade nugget necklace in a pretty pale shade of green. It is 28 inches long with a tied end for over the head wear. I bought it from an older women, and happened to have a newer vintage (1970s) carved jade lotus flower on hand, measuring 2 inches across, that I added to turn it into a conversation piece. The large piece of jade is carved with petals with a raised stamen center (it is not as yellow as the photo makes it look - more a pale green with yellow tint). In the middle is a red jade bead. Carved lily beads hang, along with lavender beads and carved hexagons. The pendant can easily be removed to wear the necklace plain as well.
All pieces are made of the more desirable jade coloring. A string of jade holds a prominent place for the Chinese as a symbol of high rank and authority. It is also considered the concentrated essence of love and used in wedding ceremonies.
