The pendant has two sides. One with an applied carved coral figural group of a geisha with a child. The figures are embellished with a tree with 17 faceted amethysts or rubies gems, an opal, and an apple green cabochon jade. The back side has a dragon, a bird of paradise with tree faceted rubies or amethysts gems for eyes, and a turquoise cabochon.
The coral has 4 or 6 aligned cracks as shown in pic 11, please enlarge to examine it. It's either the "cracks" were made by the artist, that symmetrically combined two pieces of coral, the geisha, and the child, or it's the result of an impact or a fall. Regardless, the flaw doesn't affect the safety, as the coral sits sturdy with tree clamps.
The top hook has a minor bent. Otherwise item is solid, gorgeous, and ready to wear. Thank you and have a great day!
