Vintage Chinese RARE Mandarin Court Cloisonne Bead Earrings,Amazonite
Vintage Chinese turquoise lapis blue cinnabar mandarin court cloisonne enameled beads 1970, Vintage semiprecious amazonite stone beads 1970, gold
Bright, festive and upbeat - these vintage beaded earrings feature rare "open enamel work" cloisonne beads that showcase bright turquoise, deep lapis blue, and cinnabar red! These beads measure approximately 15mm or 5/8" across and are known as mandarin court beads.
Each bead is enameled on two sides with the double happiness symbol and two sides with the Shou symbol~ The Chinese symbol Shou has the meaning of longevity or long life. The five fortunes are wealth, health, longevity, love and virtue. Longevity is the most highly esteemed value of the five-fold of happiness.
They hang gracefully below 10mm vintage bright turquoise vintage amazonite that we purchased in Hong Kong during the early 1980's.
(Amazonite is a feldspar mineral that comes from Brazil and is a very rare color for feldspar - moonstone and sunstone are also varieties of feldspar.)
Very ornate gold plated pewter bead caps hug the amazonite bead both top and bottom and the total length of these earrings is 1 5/8".
They've been finished on gold filled french ear wires and will arrive in a little box all ready for gift giving.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: POSTAGE RATES HAVE RISEN DRAMATICALLY IN 2016
ORDERS INSIDE USA: A charge of $3.60 covers any first class shipment up to 8 ounces. Our beads vary so much in weight that it is impossible for us to apply a single add-on charge for multiple product orders. We will continue to refund to customers any amount that greatly exceeds our actual cost of shipping and handling.
ORDERS OUTSIDE USA: International First Class rates are now crazy: $13.50 for any package weighing from 1-8 ounces. Even an order for 2-3 small bead items may cost $13.50 or more, depending on the type of material (stone versus resin, for example). Please bear with us for a few weeks while we change our listings to account for the new rates. We apologize in advance if we have to adjust the postage cost of an order that has been placed. We will understand if an order is rescinded when the postage cost is too high relative to the product value.
All international orders have contents described as "loose beads" and are flagged as "commercial samples" or " gift" if you prefer to make your life easier when receiving your beads. If you'd like us to mark your order as " gift" instead please let us know!
All our beads are inspected one by one before being shipped. They are individually wrapped to protect them and then put in little plastic ziploc bags.
All vintage beaded jewelry is either shipped in a little gift box tied with a ribbon or in a vintage Chinese embroidered silk purse.
If you ever have a problem with a damaged bead or jewelry, don't hesitate to contact us. We are only human, and with so many orders going out on a daily basis, there is always room for error.

Nice beads!! Super fast thanks a lot!!!
I have dreamed of having a necklace such as the jade one. But the red one. That was a surprise. Both are beautiful. Thank you! Best, Jane
Lovely color;!interesting stones.
When I thought that I had ordered two of these and then checked out I had to order another set. The seller was very kind and combined my two orders and refunded my shipping.
Nice quick shipping on some hard to find items! Good packaging too!
