Angel Skin Coral & Jade Carved Shou Dragon Bead Set Necklace & Earrings 14K Gold. A lovely set of Chinese carved coral and Jade bead necklace and earrings in 14K gold. Comprised of natural and untreated Angel Skin corals and Jadeite Jade beads, with each bead meticulously hand-carved all around with two Shou symbols for long happy life and two crouching dragons. The beads were likely carved in the 1930s to the 1960s.
Mottled color with the Angel Skin corals presenting as very light orange with streaks of white here and there; the Jadeite Jade beads in green with streaks of white. Necklace: Measures 29 inches long (end to end), 57 carved graduating coral beads ranging in size from approximately 14.47 mm to 2.25 mm in diameter; and 18 Jadeite Jade carved beads with average size of 9 mm in diameter.Restrung with each bead individually double-knotted. (Note: due to graduating beads, it is more suitable to wear the necklace long rather than double-layer, because the larger beads will be on the side instead of the front in order to avoid showing the clasp). Earrings: Measures 1 5/8 inches long.
The Angel Skin coral bead measures approximately 12 mm in diameter and the Jadeite Jade measures 9 mm in diameter. In overall very good antique condition.
