An exquisite 15mm AAA grade malachite bead has been ornately hand carved with the Chinese eternity symbol. Additional AAA grade 10mm malachite beads beautifully highlight the two vintage Chinese Champleve or raised cloisonne beads which measure approximately 14mm ( 5/8" ).
Vintage Chinese champleve cloisonné beads from the 1970s is quite sought after and highly collectible as the workmanship is superb and far superior to what is being exported from China these days. This deep red color in particular is difficult to find anymore.
Once considered so precious that only royalty could afford it, this amazing stone called malachite is now available for all to enjoy, thanks to immense deposits discovered in Zaire. Only in a few such spots on earth does this mineral occur in masses that are compact, thick and sturdy enough to allow production of carvings, plates and tiles.
AAA grade malachite such as in this bracelet ( and other pieces in my shop ) are a rich, velvety green material that displays banding, bulls-eye circles and flower-like patterns in lush and distinctive shades, all polished to a gleaming finish.
◉ All the stone beads which I used in my designs are vintage from the 1970s-1980s - and personally selected by me in Hong Kong during this time period. The workmanship of these beads is meticulous with all the beads being perfectly round with an even polish and drilled through the center. Nowadays stone beads are being cut and exported from India where the cost of labor is cheap and the quality of workmanship is nowhere near that of Asia over 35 years ago.
Two different ornate handmade Bali 24k Gold vermeil bead caps add additional definition as do the tiny handmade Bali 24K gold beads which separate the malachite beads.
This bracelet has been finished on a handmade Bali 24K Gold vermeil toggle clasp and125this bracelet measures approximately 7 1/2 " long .

ORDERS OUTSIDE USA: International First Class rates are now crazy: $13.50 for any package weighing from 1-8 ounces.

Please bear with us for a few weeks while we change our listings to account for the new rates. We apologize in advance if we have to adjust the postage cost of an order that has been placed. We will understand if an order is rescinded when the postage cost is too high relative to the product value.
All international orders have contents described as "loose beads" and are flagged as "commercial samples" or " gift" if you prefer to make your life easier when receiving your beads. If you'd like us to mark your order as " gift" instead please let us know!

I have dreamed of having a necklace such as the jade one. But the red one. That was a surprise. Both are beautiful. Thank you! Best, Jane
Lovely color;!interesting stones.
When I thought that I had ordered two of these and then checked out I had to order another set. The seller was very kind and combined my two orders and refunded my shipping.
Nice quick shipping on some hard to find items! Good packaging too!
