Art Deco Chinese 14kt Carved Jade & Seed Pearl Necklace

SKU: 39975

A beautiful jade and pearl necklace from the Art Deco (ca1930s) era! This lovely necklace has an artistic design that reflects its Chinese origin. At the center is a smooth teardrop jade pendant, which is hand-carved on both sides with a swirled dragon motif. Multiple strands of fine natural seed pearls form a "chain," which is further adorned with jade beads throughout. The jade has a gorgeous light green color, marbled with pale streaks of milky white. Each natural seed pearl is hand strung on white thread, exhibiting a soft white color and shimmery luster. The necklace fastens with a 14kt white gold filigree clasp in the back, completing the design. A stunning Art Deco piece, it would be right at home in any jade collection!

Measurements:  The necklace measures 19" long. The pendant at the center hangs 2 1/2" long from its extension. The jade plaque itself is 1 1/4" tall, 3/4" wide, and 5/16" thick. The jade beads vary in size, with the smaller beads measuring 4mm, and the larger beads measuring 8mm. Each natural seed pearl is about 2mm in size.

Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the carved jade plaque or any of the jade beads. All of the natural seed pearls are intact and securely strung. The clasp fastens securely and is in good working condition.
