Vintage Celadon & Russet Jadeite Jade Cylinder Charm in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A beautiful vintage cylinder charm, whose celadon green jade is figured with areas of swirling russet (red) jade. This untreated, bi-color, jadeite jade cylinder is finished with 14k gold end caps. These caps seem to be held on with epoxy, and the cylinder does not appear to be drilled. This is an unusual vintage charm— we love the multicolor jade and we think its swirling forms add something of the natural world, something mystical or potion-like to what is (in essence) a very minimalist pendant. This charm hangs from an oval jump ring. Marked 14k for purity.
c. 1940 - 1950
Total drop (including bail) measures approx 29.6 mm (about 1 1/4"); cylinder measures approx 10.25 x 8 mm; weight is approx 3.9 grams.
