Carved Orange to White Jade Jadeite Pendant in 14k Yellow Gold
This mysterious piece is full of fun figures and some we don't recognize as well! On the front facing side we see a carved smiling man, holding a flower whose vines curl underneath him. On his right hand side we see scales like a fish or perhaps like a palm tree? On the reverse side we also see the fish firming the back of his hand holding something. The carving is nicely done and the piece has a lovely heavy, cold feeling. Scattered ringers create the 14k bail atop the piece. The pendant measures just over 2 1/8" in length including the bail and it is 1 1/8" across at the base, narrowing slightly towards the top. The pendant is stamped 585 (14k) at the top of the bail and it weighs 21.65g. The chain is not included.
