A gorgeous genuine jade vintage pendant carved into the form of a graceful koi fish with a bubble emerging from his open mouth.
The jade has a beautiful lustre, it has been tested with the Presidium Duo Gem Tester and it registers high in the jadeite jade range. It is a lovely semi translucent caramel colour with opaque yellow marbling and the edges of the carp are almost transparent giving internal realism to the fish when it is held up to the light, very unusual. The pendant is beautifully engraved with realistic features and the carved outline of the fish is just gorgeous!
The pendant is fairly large size and quite weighty, a heavy duty jump ring stamped with a British lion passant for sterling silver is threaded through the bubble at the top and a high quality sterling silver serpentine chain with double S-shaped links completes the necklace and adds to the lovely aquatic theme!
A fabulous amulet, Jade is an ancient gemstone thought to bring love, good luck and prosperity!
