Estate Large Chinese 14kt Jade, Coral + Ruby Bird Motif Pendant
A beautiful and unique Estate jade pendant! This fabulous 14kt yellow gold piece is relatively large in size and features a decorative design that reflects its Chinese origin. A gorgeous carved jade ring creates a perfect setting for the lovely nature-inspired scene at the center. The jade frame displays fantastic coloring, exhibiting shades of soft and milky green hues with a semi-translucent quality and smoothly polished finish. A vibrant yellow gold design within the center depicts two lovely birds resting on branches featuring delicate leaves and blossoming flowers. Two raspberry red rubies dot the birds' eyes, and two additional rubies adorn the center of two flowers near the base of the design. A vibrant green, teardrop-shaped jade stone is prong set at the tip of two blossoming flowers and adorn the body of each bird, and a pop of orange color from a single coral stone at the center completes the eye-catching design. A gold loop wraps around the jade ring and is attached to a simple bail at the top, perfect for adding the pendant to a favorite chain. Stamped on the back of the center design are "14K" and "585" gold purity marks. A wonderful statement pendant, it has a very striking appearance and would look perfect worn day or night!
Measurements: The pendant hangs approximately 2 5/8" long (including the bail at the top), and measures about 2" wide, and is little more than 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the pendant is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting. There are a few natural inclusions within the coral and jade stones, however, due to their size and location, they are not noticeable when worn. All of the rubies are intact and securely set, and the bail is secure and in good working condition.
