Vintage Large Faceted Red Jade Pendant
When dealing in estate, vintage and antique jewelry there's no telling what will come along next. This is a great case in point.
A very fine vintage Italian made Red Jade pendant mounted in a 14K gold frame. This is a rare piece on several levels: excellent finish with highly polished front and back, excellent translucency, and very even texture. They're all here. And the checkerboard faceting is especially nice and not often applied to Jade. The color, too, is remarkable, closely resembling Ruby Red.
We mention that this is a large pendant, which it is, measuring 32.5mm in diameter. It suspends beautifully from a 16 inch rope chain in 10K gold. The pendant has a weight of 11g and the chain has a weight of 2.86 grams.
A unique piece that everyone will ask about and compliment.
