Smithsonian Institution Exclusive
Authentic Chinese blue and white beads—molded in porcelain, hand painted, glazed, and fired—grace this exquisite Blue and White Porcelain Bead Long Necklace. Beads of deep cobalt blue glass and silver-plated metal offer elegant contrasts. Silver-plated findings. Designed and assembled in the U.S.A.
Glorious Ming & Qing dynasty Chinese porcelains curated by our Freer Gallery of Art—especially the blue and white patterns that ultimately fueled a booming export trade with Europe—inspired this jewelry.
