Antique Mother-of-Pearl Gaming Counter Yellow Gold Silver Pendant Steel Chain

$390per item

About

This striking necklace features an antique, mother-of-pearl Chinese gambling counter dating back to the 18th Century. The oval gaming counter is set in a striking blackened silver setting that is accented with an 18k yellow gold rivet and bail. This design is very versatile and looks beautiful worn with both casual and dressy attire! Originally carved in China for export to Britain, gaming counters were used like we would use poker chips. Each was engraved by hand with exquisite detail; different sizes and shapes were made to represent different denominations. These are original counters that we have made into an elegant line of jewelry we call our "Eastern Gates Collection." Each gaming counter is original and unique. The designs in this collection were inspired by the architecture of ancient China; each gaming counter is set in hand-engraved 18k yellow gold with brightly polished silver (and/or blackened silver). The pieces all complement each other beautifully and are perfect for wearing alone or mixing and matching in various combinations. Wonderful conversation pieces that display beautiful craftsmanship, rich history, and a lasting appreciation of art! Handcrafted by our jewelers in Los Angeles. This pendant measures 1-1/2" across and 1" high from top to bottom, including the bail. One 18-inch, blackened steel link chain is included; chains up to 30" in length are also available. Please refer to the history of the gaming counter shown alongside our additional photographs of this pendant.
