Unmarked Ming's Jade And Ming's Signature Gold Ball Custom Bracelet.
We just picked up a Unmarked Ming's Custom Bracelet today
from our Jeweler.
Ming's made this special bracelet for someone who cracked a
very old family jade bracelet.
The Bracelet has very translucent Apple and Spinach Jade mix
Veining and is set as Links with Gold Ming's Caps on each end.
The Jade Pieces are larger in the center of the bracelet
and two smaller jade pieces complete the bracelet on the ends.
The original bracelet was made with pearl Links with a simple clasp with no Signature Ming's Gold Accent Design.
We also purchased a Ming's Custom Amethyst Necklace
from the same client.
Also unmarked,the necklace was made of Amethyst Balls
on Gold Links and The Hallmark Ming's Gold Pierced Gold Decorative Ball.
The Necklace was finished with the decorative Ming's Clasp.
After several months of looking at both of these Ming's Pieces,
I decided to combine the two jewelry pieces.
The First reason was that the Jade bracelet needed to be repaired
since the clasp had come undone.
The Second reason was our Jeweler was familiar with repairing
Ming's with the "Twist" that Ming's used as Links.
The Third reason was the Bracelet and Necklace pieces were
very small jewelry pieces in sizing.
The former owner was a very petite woman.
Also after asking several Ming's Collectors for their opinions,
most all of them were in agreement this would further enhance
the Jade bracelet by removing the pearls and replacing
these with the gold balls.
The Amethyst Necklace was made into a Two Strand Bracelet
with the Signature Ming's Decorative Clasp.
Both were far more functional for the new owners of these
Happy Treasure Hunting!
