SOLD Vintage 14kt Gold Jade Buddha Pendant
A cheerful vintage talisman or charm with nephrite jade carved into the shape of a buddha. The buddha rests in a solid 14kt gold setting, which is hallmarked on the underside, and it has Chinese characters carved into the back. I believe the characters resemble those that represent good fortune and this would sit well with the idea of a lucky buddha. A cute little thing with a lovely happy face that could be added to any charm collection.
