Art Deco Jadeite Necklace-Red Coral Beads & Enamel Bars

This is a very old necklace that features jadeite and natural red coral. It is made of gilt/silver and gilt/brass with enameled bars. After doing some research, I have concluded that the necklace is a "composite" of Victorian jewelry. Many times, ladies would inherit jewelry and combine pieces to make a new piece.

The necklace is 15 inches long but links could easily be added to lengthen. The centerpiece has a 2 1/4 inch drop.

The jadeite medallion in the centerpiece is 15.5mm in diameter. The other two jadeite medallions are 17.2 mm in diameter. These center jade is not carved as the other 2 so I believe that the centerpiece is from another necklace, probably from the 1920's.

The jadeite sections are separated by enameled bars and gilt/brass figure eights. The enameled bars are about 1/2 inch long and in overall good shape. They are enameled on both sides and there is some minor loss to enamel as shown in photos. You don't notice it very much until viewed under magnification.

The small red coral beads are hand carved and are 3.7 - 4mm in diameter.

The necklace has a spring-ring closure but no marks on the closure.

Shipping is $6.25 and USPS insurance is $10.50.
