A classic for any season, gorgeous cloisonné beads—delicately patterned with pink blossoms—are complemented by genuine jade orbs and cultured pearls. Gold-plated spacers and toggle clasp. Made in the U.S.A.
An art form originating in the Middle East and elevated in China (after its arrival there in the 13th and 14th centuries), the cloisonné technique adorns copper, bronze, or brass objects with copper wire designs. The resulting cells are then filled with enamel, fired in a kiln and polished, creating a harmonious contrast between the gleaming metal and the jewel-hued enamel. Cloisonné and jade jewelry can be found in our Freer Gallery of Art. A gift to the nation from Charles Lang Freer, the Freer Gallery contains the world's most important collections of Asian art.
20"l. Toggle clasp.
