Rare carved chocolate jade and faceted topaz crystal necklace. These lovely golden topaz lead crystal beads have a rainbow aurora coating for excellent shimmer. Their sparkling color accent the very rare highly polished chocolate hand carved jade barrel beads giving this one of a kind necklace a very unique look. I was lucky enough to get several strands of this jade and now I can't find anything like it. This length is 16 inches long and has an extra inch of chain for 17 inches and that perfect fit. It is finished with a bali style gold plated S clasp. The matching bracelet is 8 1/4 inches long and it is finished with a gold plated clasp
