Giant Mid-Century Jadeite, Sapphire and Ruby Pendant in 14k c. 1960
I've seen pendants with similar motifs before, but never one as large or ornately designed as this one! A crane and a bird greet each other on a lake among palm trees and pagodas in 14k, with four natural sapphires, two natural rubies and four jadeite cabochons highlighting the scene. The background is a large greenish-white jadeite disc set in a 14k frame. The reverse depicts a Chinese character for luck or blessings. It is lovely! It is also quite large, measuring at a whopping 2.5" in diameter and weighing 29.6 grams.
Stamped "14k 585" on bail and acid-tested for metal content. Chain is gold-filled and can be included for an additional fee.
