A VINTAGE 18K GOLD, CHINESE GREEN JADE & FRESHWATER PEARLS NECKLACE!
IF YOU LOVE PEARLS WITH A STUNNING LUSTEROUS SKIN, ADORE THE SUMPTUOUSNESS OF GLEAMING REAL 18KT YELLOW GOLD COMBINED WITH THE FINEST DEEP GREEN CHINESE NATURAL JADE THEN THIS FABULOUS TRIPLE STRAND NECKLACE WILL BECOME YOUR FAVORITE JUST AS IT WAS MINE FOR SOME 20 YEARS! THERE'S AN ENORMOUS DIFFERENCE OF QUALITY BETWEEN NEW THIN COATED PEARLS AND THE INTENSE SHEEN OF VINTAGE PEARLS LIKE THIS WITH SUCH AN OUTSTANDING & BRILLIANT DEEP NACRE. THESE ARE LARGE SIZED APPROXIMATELY 7.5mm IN LENGTH TOP GRADE FRESH WATER (OFTEN CALLED RICE FOR THEIR SHAPE) PEARLS. THE UNIQUE ONE OF A KIND CHARACTERISTICS ARE A DESIREABLE ASPECT ALONG WITH THEIR AMAZINGLY SMOOTH SKIN AND OF COURSE THE SHEEN THAT IMMERCES EACH OF THESE EXQUISITE PEARLS. THE 3 STRANDS ARE OF VARYING LENGTHS OF 16, 17 & 18 INCHES CREATING A STUNNING LAYER OF GLISTENING PEARL GEMS. WE'VE ALL SEEN THE CHEAP PEARLS SOLD IN MALL TYPE JEWELRY STORES BUT THEY HAVE ONLY A THIN COATING WHICH WEARS AWAY QUICKLY AND THEY LACK ANY DEPTH OF LUSTER UNLIKE THESE HIGH QUALITY PEARLS WITH THICK SKINS PROVIDING AN EVER LASTING BRIGHTNESS THAT WERE CREATED TO SURVIVE FOR GENERATIONS. HEIRLOOM PEARLS SUCH AS THESE ARE SIMPLY NOT AVAILABLE TODAY EXCEPT AT VERY HIGH END PEARL SPECIALITY DEALERS AND LUXERIOUS BOUTIQUE NAME JEWELRY STORES. NOT ONLY ARE THESE THE FINEST FRESHWATER PEARLS BUT THE CLASP SURELY SYMBOLIZES THE EXTRAORDINARY QUALITY. THIS EXCEPTIONAL CLASP IS OBVIOUSLY A CUSTOM CREATION BEING CRAFTED IN ALL SOLID 18KT REAL YELLOW GOLD. THE CLASP MEASURES ABOUT 5/8 INCH IN DIAMETER, DESIGNED WITH A TRADITIONAL CHINESE SPIDER WEB MOTIF SET WITH A PRONG MOUNTED IMPORTANT NATURAL DEEP IMPERIAL GREEN COLOR CHINESE JADE DISK (MEASURING ABOUT 7mm IN DIAMETER). THE REVERSE OF THE CLASP CRAFTED WITH BEAUTIFUL OPENWORK FLOWERS & LEAVES OF WONDERFUL CHINESE DESIGN. THE SECURE LOCKING TONGUE LATCH WITH EXTERIOR SAFETY IS STRONG AND IDEALLY SUITED WITH ITS HEAVY CONSTRUCTION TO SUPPORT THE SOME 150 STUNNING PEARLS. THESE ARE COSTLY PEARLS SO EACH PEARL BEAD IS INDIVIDUALLY HAND KNOTTED JUST INCASSE OF ACCIDENTAL BREAKAGE, YOU WON'T LOOSE A PEARL OR BE CHASING THEM ALL OVER THE FLOOR. THIS IS SUCH A WEARABLE AND ELEGANT STRAND. PEARLS POSSESS A UNIQUE BEAUTY THAT IS SO EASILY WORN WITH ANY OUTFIT AND UNLIKE THE COMMON ROUND, THESE EACH HAVE THEIR OWN UNIQUE & INDIVIDUAL CHARACTERISTICS AS SPECIAL AND ONE OF A KIND AS THE PERSON WEARING THEM. I PURCHASED THIS JUST OVER 2 DECADES AGO FROM THE ESTATE OF A LADY WHO'S HUSBAND WAS WITH THE CHINESE CONSOLATE HERE IN LOS ANGELES. ACTUALLY, MY BEST JADE PIECES, MANY OF WHICH I'M STILL KEEPING, CAME FROM HER FABULOUS ESTATE AND JEWELRY COLLECTION. IT'S OBVIOUS THAT MY INDEPENDANT GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST APPRAISER WAS EQUALLY IMPRESSED WITH THIS EXTRAORDINARY TRIPLE STRAND BY PROVIDING AN INSURANCE EVALUATION FOR AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE OF $5,480.00. IF YOU'RE FAMILAR WITH TRUE QUALITY PEARLS AND LOVE AS I, THE IMPORTANCE OF THE RAREST & MOST DESIREABLE IMPERIAL GREEN CHINESE JADES THEN YOU SURELY REALIZE THAT IT'S HARD TO PLACE VALUES ON IRREPLACEABLE PIECES OF FINE VINTAGE JEWELRY. IT'S WHY I LOVE OFFERING MOST OF MY BEST JEWELRY PIECES WITH NO RESERVE AS THIS ALLOWS ALL OF YOU TO DETERMINE A TRUE VALUATION. THERE'S NO SECRET BID AMOUNT, MINIMUM OR PRICE NEEDED TO WIN ~ SIMPLY PUT, WHEN THE AUCTION ENDS, HIGH BIDDER WINS! SO PLEASE DON'T MISS THIS SCARCE OPPORTUNITY TO PLEASURE IN OBTAINING SOMETHING RARE AND SPECTACULAR AT A PRICE THAT YOU ARE COMFORTABLE BIDDING. REMEMBER TO BID OFTEN AND CLICK "WATCH THIS ITEM" SO YOU DON'T MISS OUT. I ONLY HAVE ONE AND I'VE NEVER SEEN ANOTHER. THIS SPECTACULAR NECKLACE HAS AN IMPRESSIVE WEIGHT OF 47.7 GRAMS. THE THE CLASP IS FULLY HALLMARKED "18K" - FOR REAL 18KT (750 PURITY) YELLOW GOLD. I KNOW IT CAN BE SCARY BUYING DIAMOND & GEMSTONE JEWELRY ON THE INTERNET, ESPECIALLY ON EBAY SO I AM NOW OFFERING AN AGL APPRAISAL WITH SELECT ITEMS THAT HAVE SIGNIFICANT VALUE. I HAVE CHOSEN AN INDEPENDANT GIA GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST WHO HAS TAKEN AND COMPLETED EVERY COURSE OFFERED RELATING TO GEMS & JEWELRY. I HAVE CHOSEN THIS APPRAISER WITH NO VESTED INTEREST IN MY JEWELRY OR BUSINESS SO THAT THE ITEMS YOU RECIEVE FROM ME WILL SURELY EXCEED ANY EXPECTATION RELATING TO YOUR DESIRE FOR MAGNIFICENT JEWELRY. I HOPE THE APPRAISAL WILL BE USEFUL IN GUIDING YOU TO FIND THINGS THAT YOU WILL ENJOY AND CHERISH FOR DECADES & GENERATIONS TOO COME. THE APPRAISAL NOT ONLY PROVIDES ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR MAKING VALUEABLE DECISIONS FOR BIDDING BUT CAN ALSO BE USED WHEN INSURING YOUR NEW PURCHASE. THE ORIGINAL APPRAISAL WILL BE INCLUDED TO THE LUCKY HIGH BIDDER OF THIS AUCTION WHEN RECEIVING THIS ITEM. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO MENTION THERE ARE TWO THINGS WHEN CARING FOR PEARLS, FIRST ONLY WASH THEM WITH MILD SOAP & WATER AND NEVER SPRAY THEM WITH COLOGNES, EAU DE (ANYTHING) OR PERFUMES. THE ALCHOHOL IN MOST SPRAYS KILLS THE LUSTER AND EATS AT THE SKIN CREATING AWEFUL DAMAGE TO A PEARLS SURFACE. THIS TYPE OF PERFUME BUILDUP WILL CHANGE THE COLOR OF YOUR PEARLS. SPRAY YOURSELF AND THEN, WHEN YOU'RE READY TO GO OUT, PUT ON YOUR STRAND OF FINE PEARLS AS YOU WALK OUT THE DOOR. IF YOU LOVE FANTASTIC QUALTIY PEARL NECKLACES THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS SPECTACULAR 18KT YELLOW GOLD, IMPERIAL GREEN CHINESE JADE & FRESHWATER PEARLS 3-STRAND NECKLACE. THESE SCARCELY FOUND VINTAGE JEWELRY PIECES ARE BECOMING ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND AT ANY PRICE BUT I HAVE, AS ALWAYS, STARTED THIS WITH A VERY LOW OPENING BID TO MAKE IT AFFORDABLE TO EVERYONE WHO ADORES THE FINEST IN 3-STRAND FRESHWATER PEARL NECKLACES WITH A SOLID 18KT YELLOW GOLD & CHINESE NATURAL GREEN JADE CLASP. THIS HAS SINCE BEEN PART OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION OF FINE JEWELRY WHICH IS FOR THE FIRST TIME BEING OFFERED TO ALL THE WONDERFUL EBAY COLLECTORS WHO APPRECIATE ONLY THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF REAL FRESHWATER PEARL NECKLACES. THIS WAS NEVER IN MY STORE INVENTORY BUT KEPT AT HOME IN MY JEWELRY CHEST. I AM GETTING UP THERE IN YEARS JUST TURNING 82 YEARS YOUNG AND HAVE CLOSED MY STORE SO NOW IT IS TIME FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO CHERISH MY PERSONAL TREASURES AND TAKE THE SAME CARE THAT ONLY A LOVER OF REAL ANTIQUES AND FINE JEWELRY CAN PROVIDE MY FAVORITE POSSESSIONS. I HOPE THIS WILL BE TREASURED AND ENJOYED FOR AS MANY YEARS AS I HAVE PRIDED HAVING THIS GORGEOUS FRESHWATER PEARLS 3-STRAND NECKLACE WITH A SOLID 18KT YELLOW GOLD & IMPERIAL GREEN CHINESE NATURAL JADE CLASP IN MY COLLECTION. ENJOY AND HAPPY BIDDING!
F.Y.I. I am a 3rd generation antiques dealer & have been in the fine antiques business for over 30 years. I have had several open stores over these years but now with rents out of the realm of reality & my age creeping up on me, I have closed the last of them & I am now concentrating all efforts to on line sales. I am very knowledgeable about all types of antiques. I do not & will not sell fakes or reproductions of anything. All my items are 100% as described & the pictures prove it! Any damage or imperfection is noted and all items are mailed with an invisible ID mark that only I know of. This will eliminate anyone trying to item switch a broken treasure with my perfect piece. If you want any other detail about an item, please ask & be certain to include your direct email address for a reply. Ebay does not allow my sending pictures thru their email service. I will try to accomodate all requests on 1st come, 1st served daily basis. I do not sell outside ebay so do not ask. I can offer a very expensive buy it now if you must have it today! I ship 1 day a week so please be patient. Everything is very carefully packed as I love my things & want you to enjoy them in the same condition as I have. All items are sent via USPS & Insured at full value. Sorry if this costs International buyers more but these are ebay's rules & I will follow them to the letter. Please work out any special payment request in advance as all sales should be simply processed through PayPal unless we have made prior arrangements. Ask any & all questions before you bid as the bid is your contract to purchase. I allow 5 days for payment in full otherwise the item is sold to the next highest bidder or re-listed & I will leave appropriate feedback to all non paying bidders. I hope everything is very plain & simple to understand but do not be shy about asking anything should you require additional info or details. I hope you enjoy each & every item as most are from my private collection assembled over the past 30 years and never before offered for sale. Each piece is very special, of great quality, rare for its' kind and worthy of any advanced collection. Thank You, Bernice Ellen
