...to hold and behold
Here is a treasured necklace, composed of 16 old rock crystal beads and one quartz elephant bead. The crystal beads remind me of ice while the quaint elephant has a touch of the evergreen.

The crystal beads were sold as Yuan dynasty (1279-1368) by a China dealer but its hard to determine the exact vintage. Meanwhile it's still a lovely strand to hold and behold.
