Necklace with carved Black Jade and pear shape Emerald

The designer of this piece provided us with wax carvings to show us how they wanted the pieces of Black Jade shaped.

There are 5 separate pieces of carved Black Jade. The center piece of Black Jade is pear-shaped like the center Emerald. The Emerald is mounted in a pear-shaped gold bezel and sleeve which inserts into a pear-shaped hole cut into the Black Jade.

The two far outside pieces have a series of ribs carved into them. On each side of the center piece are pieces of Black Jade which overlap both the center piece and the outer pieces.

When this piece is worn by the owner, the 5 pieces of Black Jade slide past each other which gives the appearance that the Black Jade is flexible.

The goldsmith designed an elaborate hinging mechanism that attaches to the back of each piece of Jade. This connects all 5 pieces and allows them to articulate and move beside one another while the neck piece is being worn and gives to look of one large "flexible" piece of Black Jade. The designer of this piece is truly a creative genius.
