This necklace features a vintage carved buddha stone made circa 1950 for a jewelry brand called "Swank". We sourced these stones from a seller in The Netherlands and have reworked these beautiful stones into a pendant necklace.
The pendant has been attached to an 18k gold plated, 18" box chain that has a 4cm extension chain for the perfect fit.
Pendant Size: 25x18mm
