I have embarked on a journey to showcase real coral of all colors and varieties and to include a certified gemological appraisal. Gemologists are accredited to evaluate your precious jewels for insurance purposes. They weight, measure and test for absolute accuracy. They test with safe chemicals to make sure that the coral is genuine and not dyed. They stake their reputation on every appraisal. You can be assured that you are investing in the real thing by having an certified Gemological Appraisal and that is why I include at no extra cost this 100.00 bonus ( the cost to get an appraisal done by a accredited gemologist) .
The gemologist who evaluated this set told me that she had never seen a finer set of coral in her whole career. This color and quality of coral was only found in the Mediterranean.
You will get a deal and the security of knowing the exact details of this necklace.. This is a real investment piece of coral and could easily double it's appraised value over the next few years.With the certified gemological appraisal in your hand it is easy to get it upgraded every few years.
The Harold Weinstein Ltd. Gemological Laboratory is accredited by the American Gem Society.
Here is what Anne Neumann G.G. ICGA (AGS) the gemologist I had appraise the set says about it.
Coral Bead Necklace and Earpendants Lady's necklace composed of three (3) strands of eighty (80) eighty-four (84) and one hundred and one (101) coral beads, dark orangy red in colour with good polish and very well matched. The strands are 36cm (14 1/4") and 40cm (16") and 44cm (17 1/4") in length. They are strung with a brass clasp which is set with a coral cabochon, 6.8 mm in diameter.
The brass earpendants are designed as a screw-back with a pendant drop. They contain: 2 two round coral cabochon measuring approximately 7.5mm each and two (2) long drop shape 19.5x6.6x3mm each, all of dark orangy red colour with good polish, The earpendants and weigh 5.60 grams in total.
ESTIMATED TOTAL REPLACEMENT VALUE: $4,250.00
I weighed the necklace and it weighs 48 grams and the weight of the earrings and you get 53.60 in total. These earrings are worth $1000 on their own in this quality of coral. The size of the beads on the graduated necklace varies from 3.2 to 9mm. You will need to get this restrung as it is still strung on the original silk which is wearing as you can see in the photos.
Genuine coral is a worthwhile investment and the added bonus of an accredited Gemological appraisal not only verifies that this is the "real thing" but you will be able to use the appraisal for insurance purposes. Grab it up while it's still here on sale to boot !
