A very rare and unique pendant, carved from White Jadeite Jade and set in 14k Yellow Gold. Overall tubular shape with narrow top, similar to the traditional shape of a bottle. I was told this would have been a custom piece made as a special gift and it's likely the only one in existence. It was called "Key to The Temple".  I have not been able to locate anything even close or confirm that statement.

The entire surface is covered with carvings of fish and algae. It is quite difficult to photograph.

Most of the Jadeite Jade is white with some portions of vivid green and a small area of red Jade.

The top and bottom are both custom made of solid 14k Yellow Gold. The bottom is finished with three flat charms.

Overall approximate measurement is 2 7/8" long from the top of the bail to the tip of the center charm. It is approximately 5/8" at the widest point.

Approximate total weight is 22.3 gram.

In excellent condition. Dating based on the 14k/585 mark on the bail, is around 1970's.

We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
