** CHINESE ** ~ 14K Yellow Gold ~ 585 ~Light Green * JADE or JADEITE * PENDANT ~ NO RESERVE ~ ITEM: 14K Yellow Gold Chinese Light Green Jade or Jadeite Pendant ~ Marked 14K & 585 SIZE: Pendant measures: 7/8" x 7/8" circular ~ Special Note on Weight: I have opted NOT to weigh this piece, as I believe the stone would take up most of the weight. Thanks! Please Note: Pictures have been magnified for better viewing. Please refer to measurements above for actual size. Thank you! ITEM DETAILS: This auction features a 14K Yellow gold Jade or Jadeite pendant. The pendant is a light (almost mint color) green. It bears a chinese symbol in the middle, although I will openly admit that I do not know what this symbol stands for. The bail is marked on the top with both, "14K" and "585" (please see pictures for marking). Although I am unsure of the exact age , I always associate the "585" marking with older pieces. Either way, it is a very pretty pendant! CONDITION: Fair - I am considering the use of this item when factoring the condition. Although exact age is unknown on this piece, it was purchased used . With that considered, I would say it rates in Fair condition. T are some minor surface scratches seen, but most of what I saw was only seen in a certain light. The only exception to this is what appears to be a very odd, purposely done set of set scratches on the back, middle gold piece. The almost looks like a "T" with the only difference being three lines below the top line, versus one. Maybe another Chinese character? I am really not positive. T is some minor bending to the top bail piece (not the bail itself, but the tiny "O" that it is connected to). I don't personally feel this is a big issue, but I did want to note it for accuracy. I did check the jade with my loupe and -- aside from the minor surface scratches mentioned above -- do not see any areas of chips, cracks, or missing pieces. With use considered, I would still say this pendant rates in Fair condition overall. AGE/ YEAR MADE: Unknown Hi, Thanks for stopping by to view this auction.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: PLEASE READ!
ABOUT MY ITEMS
I do my very best to accurately describe the items that I sell, listing their imperfections just as much as their attributes. I always try to note flaws very carefully so t are no surprises when an item is received. I purchase my items from a variety of sources (Estate Sales, Auctions, Second Hand Stores, Etc), and I go on internal instinct and a certain amount of "learned" experience, as well. After 4 years on eBay, I have become quite good at evaluating costume jewelry. Please know, though, that I am NOT an expert in any given category . The items I sell are nearly always older and/ or used, and will likely show evidence of this. Being human, I occasionally may miss something. Please know, too, that this is never done intentionally. PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION FULLY & CAREFULLY! I believe that the detailed description, along with the pictures (which I often pay extra for), will help provide a better understanding of what is being offered. If you still have questions (or if you see something that I have missed), please email me and I will be happy to help you. On that same note, I will now be more cautious about feedback ratings. I reserve the right to remove a bid placed from an eBayer whom I feel abuses the feedback system (i.e. - excessive negative and/or neutral feedback received AND/OR left), or appears to consistently bid and then not pay. I have never monitored this in the past, but I feel now I must have to. I am realizing that - although my feedback is EXTREMELY important to me - it is not always the same with others. If you do not want a used item - or something that is NOTED as having flaws -- PLEASE DO NOT BID! ...... read more
