This beautiful, fabulous angel-skin coral necklace was hand-made by me a few months ago. It is truly wearable art. It is composed of real genuine Mediterranean angel-skin coral. I have been collecting coral jewelry for over 30 years. Yes, I am pretty old, too! The beads in this necklace came from five necklaces I took apart. The large amazing pendant is carved into a rose and other flowers. It measures 2 inches by .75 inches. These beautifully carved pendants cost $1000 - $1500 alone. There are various sizes 4mm - 8mm round corals, as well as 3 carved angel-skin beads in tassel. There are carved tulip angel-skin beads called Pikake. There are cultured pearls and sterling beads. The necklace weights about 124 grams, of which 10 grams are sterling & about 20 grams are pearls. The angel-skin beads weight about 94 grams. Some indexes say angel-skin sells for $250 - $300 per gram, which would give a value of $23,500. But, since I have many angel-skin necklaces from 1960 - 1980, from which I get the beads, I am not pricing it at current market value. This necklace would be hard to re-create. It was very complicated to make. It is very beautiful & hangs quite perfectly. It is a new necklace hand-made by me from rather vintage angel-skin coral beads. We are putting it on sale for $2,000.xx from a retail value of $3,500.xx.
