OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADia130mm, China

The pendants of this necklace are called Yu Le Li and they are believed to be a cousin of the bracelet!

Many many years ago, Yu Le Li was a jade cylindrical tube used in the ritual ceremony for demon cleansing.  As times goes by it was developed into the form of the bracelet and also as a waist pendant.  The small pendant form is now used in this necklace.
