ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

A magnificent specimen of natural 'ice jade', elegantly hand carved into a blossoming white rose and dotted with a pair of high-quality, sparkling collet-set diamonds, glows between a pair of deep green maw sit sit carved leaves, each enlivened with a a pair of collet-set diamonds leading to a 16 inch platinum chain. A uniquely beautiful and exotic necklace. The rose measures just over 1 1/2 inches across, the leaves measure just over one inch. One small epoxy repair on one leaf. The following is from Wikipedia: Maw-Sit-Sit, also known as Jade-albite, is a gemstone found exclusively in northern Myanmar (Burma). It was first identified in 1963 by the late Swiss gemologist, Dr. Edward Gubelin, and was named after the village close to where it was first found in the foothills of the Himalayas. Typically maw-sit-sit is green with distinctive dark-green to black veins. Maw-sit-sit is technically a rock rather than a mineral. It is composed of several different minerals, including kosmochlor (also known as ureyite), varying amounts of chromium-enriched jadeite, and albite feldspar.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
