This necklace consists of an exquisite antique Chinese hair ornament pendant dating from the 1800s in the form of a ruyi (ceremonial scepter). The ruyi is suspended from a teal silk cord with white bronze cord caps and S clasp. This is a magnificent example of enameled Chinese hair ornaments which has been preserved in original condition. The necklace is a one of a kind necklace. The necklace measures 22 inches long not including the pendant. The pendant measures approximately 5.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide at the widest point. A real find for the collector of antique Chinese enamel jewelry, the ruyi symbolizes power and good fortune for the wearer in Chinese folklore. Since the pendant is in original condition it can be detached from the cord and still used as a hair ornament. Please note: the photos may show the metal as a gold color but it is silver.
