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!

The brooch has a chain that depends from each side of the clasp ending with a patterned gold bead and chain tassel. The brooch has a tube hinge and C-clasp, with an extra long pin stem. The back has a locket area for hair or a picture covered with the original glass. I have not attempted to remove it.

The brooch measures 2 3/8 by 1 1/4" and weighs 11.25 grams. The only flaw I can find is a kink in the outside right tassel chain. It lays smoothly when worn.
