Vintage Chinese Export Silver Multi Gemstone Brooch: This vintage 1930's Chinese export brooch is crafted in 800 silver and set with an eye catching bevy of small polished gemstones, all prong set. I have not identified all the stones, but the array includes pink quartz, turquoise, pink tourmaline, jade, aventurine and others. Yes some of the beads do have holes. This is because the Chinese craftsmen reused everything, and these pieces were commonly made with beads left over from other projects. Nothing was wasted. The brooch measures 1 5/8" across and is marked SILVER CHINA. These pieces were usually made in 800 silver.

Genuine Lapis Faceted Jade 14K and Chinese Cloisonne Necklace: I created this one of a kind necklace from natural untreated lapis lazuli set off with faceted British Columbian jade and 14k gold beads and clasp. The lapis is a deep rich blue with gold flecks, the larger beads are 10mm and the smaller 8mm. This is old stock lapis and has been tested to verify it is untreated. The faceted jade beads also measure 8mm and the gold beads 5mm. The pendant is a vintage Chinese cloisonne pendant, elegantly shaped and enameled with two cranes flying over a lake. The enamel work is in excellent condition, the pendant measures 2 3/4 by 2". The enamel work is on brass. The pendant has some weight, so the necklace is strung on a double strand of silk with triple knotting. The 14k pearl clasp features a double heart motif in filigree. The necklace measures 25" long. I am extremely pleased with the look of this necklace and hope you will be too!
