Description

Deep green jade and cloisonné enamel combine in this romantic and timeless jewelry set that draws inspiration from both ancient Chinese art forms and early 20th-century Art Nouveau naturalism. The necklace features vintage cloisonné beads that are surrounded by gold-plated pewter frames to highlight the beads' artistry. The earrings feature traditional cloisonné techniques framed in gold-plated pewter. Each vintage cloisonné bead is topped with a deep green jade bead.

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