This retro chinoiserie sweetheart pendant is bold, chunky, and magnificently sweet. Think of this lovely couple as a pair of Ambassadors. This retro 1970s pendant was one of the early imports when the USA reopened trade with China. These sweethearts enameled on porcelain and set in golden filigree setting are a bridge between the ancient chinoiserie aesthetic and the popular post mid century styles.
The chinoiserie sweetheart design measures 40 mm tall and the brass setting measures 65 mm from point to point; That translates to approximately 2.5 inches, plus the brass chain tassel which is 4 inches long. The materials are brass and porcelain. The 24 inch brass chain is finished with a lobster claw clasp. Overall, this piece weighs 54 grams, which translates to just over 2 ounces. Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our unique jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
