Description

This Gold Ball with Porcelain Bead Necklace is an eclectic interpretation of an elegant beaded necklace featuring 24-karat gold-plated beads interspersed with blue-and-white porcelain spheres, inspired by iconic Ming and Qing Dynasty artwork found in our National Museum of Asian American Art. The juxtaposition adds a playful touch to an otherwise classical design.

This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
