Art Deco 14kt Carved GIA-Certified Natural Jadeite Jade Earrings
A beautiful pair of carved natural jadeite jade earrings from the late Art Deco (ca1930) era! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold, these stunning earrings display a wonderful floral design. Each features a large, elongated jade plaque, which has an ornate hand-carved image covering both sides, displaying soft scrolls, small flowers, closed blooms and pierced cutouts throughout. The large carved link hangs from a prong set carved jadeite surmount which carries the shape of a single, round blooming flower. The flower rests atop a gold earring post, perfectly completing the design. The jadeite has brilliant mottled green and white color with a varying, marbled appearance which darkens towards the bottom. Accompanying the earrings is a Gemological Report issued by GIA Laboratories (Gemological Institute of America) in April 2018, which confirms the stone's stated characteristics. When worn, the earrings hang long and frame the face beautifully, making them a fantastic statement piece!
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 2 1/8" in total length. The larger carved jade plaques measure a little less than 1 1/2" long, a little more than 1/2" wide, and 1/8" thick. The round toppers have an approximate diameter of a little more than 1/2".
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or posts and the carved jadeite plaques are intact and free of chips or scratches.
