14K Gold and Jade Pea Pod Pendant with Rubies
This is a darling pea pod pendant made with hand-carved jade and adorned with 5 rubies. Pea pods symbolize familial prosperity and fertility, and are often gifted to newlyweds. This pod is unique, in that it is delicately hand-carved, with flowering ruby vines dappled across the front.
The pod is a lovely apple green, and the rubies offer nice color variation. They each measure about 2.5 mm. The pendant weighs 6.7 grams and measures 2 “ by 1/2” at the widest part.
The back of the pod is sterling silver and the rubies have been pierced through the jade and are rivet set. The bail has a nice wide opening and is made with 14k yellow gold, allowing it to hang from a larger chain if desired.
This pea pod pendant has it all! It has a beautiful color and symbolism as well as as careful craftsmanship. It would make a fantastic gift or addition to your jewelry collection.
Please note that the pictured chain is not included with the pendant. However, this chain and many others are available through Kirsten’s Corner.
