Mardi Gras or Carnaval Mask & Fan Pendant with Rubies in Yellow Gold, Circa 1960

$980

About the Item

A fan and carnaval-style mask with flowing side ribbons are mounted on a circle of 14 karat gold to form a cool pendant or fob. The eyes of the mask and folds of the fan are set with nephrite and, as a final splash of color, three little ruby cabochons (about 1/4 carat) are set just so, and just because, at the bottom of the tableau. We replaced the top ring with an oversized oval of recycled 14 karat gold, so this pendant can slip easily over most chain hardware. Marks: Stamped "14K" on the back; no maker's mark. Age/Condition: We think this pendant dates from the 1950s or 1960s, when motif pieces with jade and ruby were popular. While it looks like a pin conversion, there's no sign of solder or joins. The piece is in excellent condition. Weight: 11.6 grams The black wrapped silk cord shown in the photos is included. It's 16.5" long, 3mm thick and has a brass push-in tube closure.
