NATURAL JADE: This is a high grade jadeite jade pendant. It is exquisitely hand carved. It is is one of a kind! The pendant is completely natural jade, un-dyed, and in its natural form.
CARVING: Unique one of a kind hand carving of a monkey climbing a tree with a bat and floral fauna. This is an exquisitely hand carved necklace!
CARVING PROCESS: The hand carving is performed by a master carver and takes weeks of work. The master carver first designs the artwork by taking account the natural jade features. In this case, the master carver wanted to emphasize the semi-translucent strong green tones in the stone. If you look at the piece, the hand carving art is specifically formulated to emphasize the jade tones. The monkey carving is very detailed. This piece is custom artwork that is designed based on the stone. This means there is only one piece like this in the world!
The hand carving is very detailed where the master carver's work is so exquisite that even small features such as the monkey face and tail can be seen. This is known as "Toothpick" Hand Carving - meaning the carving is so detailed it is being carved and detailed one little dot at a time. This is a premium level type of hand carving and takes a monumental effort by the master carver to perform. The carving is so detailed you can see the Monkey King's face very clearly as well as the scales on the dragon.
JADE COLOR: The carving has beautiful semi-translucent green tones.
ADJUSTABLE: Necklace is adjustable one size fits all!
GIFT BOX: It comes with a gift box! Ready to gift! This piece would certainly wow the recipient!
MINOR IMPERFECTIONS: This piece is hand carved and completely natural. It may have small imperfections from the natural stone or hand carving art. Depending on your lighting, monitor screen, or phone screen, the stone may look slightly different in color. Pictures are of the actual item you will receive.
