Certified Untreated Jade Necklace in Vivid Translucent Green

About

This exceptionally rare and important jade necklace is comprised of forty-seven hand-carved Mason Kay certified natural and untreated "A" jade beads that range in color from semitransparent pale blueish-green to vivid apple and into "imperial" green. The rare and precious beads range in size from 9.10 mm beside the 14k yellow gold bail to the largest bead in the center at 15 mm. All of the beads possess high translucency, superb coloring, and fine, visible grain. Each of the forty-seven beads has an extraordinarily high gloss polish. If you are a jade connoisseur, you will lose your breath over the way light is captured—and held—within each, individual bead. You will appreciate the variance between the beads: the one that is sea-foam green and almost makes you taste the spray of the ocean; the one that is like moss-on-snow except translucent not opaque; the impossibly rich imperial green; and each of the intense apple green beads that form the lower third of the necklace. At 21" in length and 89.25 grams, this is a weighty, significant piece. I believe the necklace was created somewhere between 1960 and 1970, though there is no maker's mark. This is an exquisite, rare, world-class treasure to possess for all of one's life and pass on through the family for generations.
