The look of this signed, high-end 18 karat yellow gold necklace with dark green jadeite jade links is stunning. In addition, the craftsmanship is exceptional as demonstrated by the number of time-intensive custom features.
First, is the captivating mix of the deeply saturated forest green hues of the jade, along with the lighter, variegated colors in the jadeite jade cabochons that were chosen for this piece. It's hard to look away from those rich and calming colors. The consignor has advised that the jade was graded as Type B jade by Bonhams, which means the original colors have not been altered.
Secondly, in the event you'd prefer to wear an all-gold look, the backs of the three 1.125" x .625" rectangular jadeite jade links have been crafted with an open design. I'm not sure what the symbology is meant to represent, but the design is pleasing and looks contemporary.
Third and fourth, is the substantive and wide 13.50mm(w) diamond cut design of the 18 karat yellow gold chain and the alternating two-tone bright and matte contrasting finishes in the chain after every 4th link. The variation adds depth and interest.
And lastly, the wide, hidden box clasp with taut foldover safety means this necklace will be secure around your neck. #A.
From the clasp to the bottom of the dangling link measures 9".
