This very beautiful antique Qing Dynasty carved nephrite jade dragon belt buckle has been mounted in a later sterling silver setting to form a large pendant necklace with the accompanying 18 inch sterling sliver omega neck chain. The mounted jade (without the omega chain) weighs 94.1 grams. It measures 4.25 inches long by just under 2 inches wide. This is a handmade piece hallmarked with the jewelers initials "CR" on the mounting. Beautiful fatty luster and silky feel. Excellent condition with no chips or cracks. A really exceptional piece!
I have been collecting jade for many years and this is part of my collection that was verbally authenticated by the San Francisco Asian Art museum in 1974. For more options, please see the jade section of my shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/elegantartifacts
