Gorgeous antique Hetian nephrite jade necklace. Translucent pale gray melon cut beads alternate with creamy white lotus carved beads dating from the Qing Dynasty 1800s or earlier. The large center bead is white and pale gray nephrite carved with the grain pattern and dates from the Song Dynasty (960-1279). This is an exceptional collection of very fine jade beads. The melon cut beads measure approximately 20 mm each; the lotus beads measure approximately 15 mm each; the center bead measures about 25 mm. Recently restrung with a copper serpent S clasp. This is a magnificent piece for the jade connoisseur.
