Regular price $295.00
This is a superb vintage green jade pendant necklace from China!

This beautiful necklace is comprised of marvelous green jade and gold vermeil sterling silver. It is most likely from the late Art Deco period. It features a long strand of green jade beads that have been hand-knotted on a lovely teal green cord. A large, thick, carved and pierced green jade pendant hangs from the center of the beaded necklace. The pendant depicts an elephant with a floral caparison on its back and with what appears to be an urn above. Long branches and leaves flow down from the top on both sides of the elephant, filling the pendant with lovely foliage. The pendant is carved on both sides and is pierced through in several areas. The necklace is quite heavy and makes an enchanting musical sound when the beads touch one another. It's simply captivating!

The necklace measures about 25 inches long and the beads are approximately 9mm in size. The pendant and beads tested in the jade range on a Presidium gem tester. The pendant is approximately 2 7/16 inches long and 1 13/16 inches wide. The necklace closes with a gold vermeil, oval filigree box clasp that is marked "Silver" for sterling silver on the back. The necklace weighs 99.6 grams.

This necklace is absolutely stunning! It's a fantastic piece to add to a vintage jade jewelry collection and would make an absolutely wonderful gift. The necklace is in excellent vintage condition with some minor tarnish to the back of the clasp. It's ready to wear and to be admired!
