    Found among huge collection of suitcases, boxes, dresses, hats, heavy gold and costume jewelry, bags, perfume bottles, silver dressing accessories etc.; everything was moved from Vienna in late 1920`. I am really not familiar with jade, the circular one has rather shallow carving and not very precise, but carved on both sides. The flower does not look Chinese, though. Both were worn on silk cord. Disregard 14 K gold loops, I made them, not had them made, but really made them myself to fit thick gold chains.
    Not even sure if the circular one was meant to be a pendant. Hopefully, more knowledgeable members of CW will shed some light on them.
    Thank you

      The flowers are Chinese. (I believe) They are Peony & Sunflower.

      Fro the web: Esteemed as one of the most exquisite flowers, the peony is a symbol for nobility and value. The peony became popular in the imperial palaces during the Sui and Tang dynasties, and earned the title of the "king of flowers." A symbol of spring, it is also used as a metaphor for female beauty and reproduction. Pictured in full bloom, the peony symbolizes peace.

      In Chinese symbolism, sunflowers signify intelligence, strength, good luck and a long life.

      Very nice pieces and the bails are perfect. Serpentine also polishes well and looks like Jade. Sometimes called New Jade.
