Vintage 14kt/Sterling Carved Jade + Ruby Peapod Pendant Necklace
A unique Vintage jade pendant necklace! This lovely piece, which is of Chinese origin, displays a vibrant jade pendant which is carved into the shape of a peapod, a sign of wealth and fertility. The jade has marvelous natural coloring in shades of bright green with milky accents and five rivet set ruby cabochons adorn the pod surface, displaying rich pink hues. The reverse side of the peapod reveals a sterling silver backing and the pendant is attached to a 14kt yellow gold bail which hangs from a black silk cord necklace. The necklace can be easily slipped on and off overhead comfortably, but it does secure with a matching spring ring clasp stamped "585". Perfect for the jade collector, it would make a stylish everyday accessory!
