I have had the chance to acquire two antique broken Chinese necklaces of shou beads and this necklace is one of the two (the other was yellow jade - also listed here) I have kept all the beads which were in the original necklace , lovely antique blue chalcedony and rock crystal carved with the shou - longevity pattern. Only the stringing is new! As I do not know how to knot beads I have used tiny authentic Japanese Akoya pearls as "substitue" for the knots. Antique chinese gilt sterling silver filigree clasp.Length 43.5 cm This necklace is newly strung! But I do not claim the necklace to be antique.... All necklaces come gift wrapped in silk pouches or jewelry boxes! I have had the chance to acquire a nice quantity of old stock vintage and antique used and unused Chinese beads. But I do not claim that the entire necklace is vintage, old or antique! More photos are available on request! Pleas e bear in mind that the majority of the beads and ethnic elements I use are OLD or ANTIQUE , even ANCIENT! The show wear and age. I usually mention any defaults in my descriptions but I can overlook a minuscule old chip or dent. Might have very minor defaults NOT specially mentioned in the description. I do not accept this as a reason for a return claiming that the item does not correspond to the description.
Please wait for corrected invoice! I have tried to describe my designs as clearly and accurate as possible to avoid any disputes.If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
