This jade is simply gorgeous! A work of art that was skillfully carved by a masters hand. The graceful lines and refined work sets this one apart from most. On the occasions I have worn this beauty, I always receive compliments! I collect quality jadeite and this one comes from my personal collection. Jades motif is a Chilong dragon resting on top of a lily pad. In some places its as thin as a piece of paper! His tail and whiskers drape down in an elegant manner. Detailed on both sides and adorned with a 14K gold top and bail. The jade is lavender in color with areas of light celedon green. It measures 2 inches long by 1 inch wide and 1/8 of an inch thick. With the bail it measures 2 1/2 inches long. This is natural A grade jade with no treatments or enhancements. Pendant is in well cared for condition. Light surface wear with natural fissures to tail and lily pad. Holding up securely but jade should always be held in the center as to preserve the extremely thin areas. Some jewelers adhesive by gold. The closeup photos show the areas mentioned. Nothing that deters from this pendant. If you're an advanced collector this is one to highly consider! You'll be delighted when you see this in person. Please ask all questions prior to purchase. Thank you!
