The pendant is on a 1.5 mm 16" 2 pennyweight cable link 18 K yellow gold chain. It comes with an appraisal that values this piece at $5,000.00.
This pendant is dated around the turn of the century, early 1900's. The green color of the jade stones exactly match, the pearls set on the edges of the pendant match with color, luster and size, but all of them- including the two center pearls and the dangling, pear shape one- are excellent quality and they are still in wonderful condition.
The design of the pendant is airy and simplistic, the geometric shapes- so typical for Art Nouveau give it amazing look, that simply can't be recreated.
