Up for your consideration is this SPECTACULAR Chinese pendant! It is made from the guru bead from an antique Chinese Imperial court necklace! The coral is deeply carved from natural pinkish-orange Momo coral, and features Shou symbols. The two coral pieces are joined with solid 14K yellow gold and have been converted into a necklace pendant.
This pendant measures approximately 2 in total length (bale included), by 19mm wide. The coral is in EXCELLENT antique condition, as are the gold elements. It weighs 11.2 grams on my digital scale, and is hallmarked 14K on the bale.Beads like this from old court necklaces are extremely rare.
