This Japanese vintage angel skin coral brooch is placed on a silver back and pin. It was made by a Japanese artisan, the carved coral is natural and the silver is a silver tone back. It is very lovely natural coral carved into the plum flower and leaves. It has been my experience that their silver tone pieces in jewelery (not silver plated) can last a lifetime. It is a beautifully made piece. It appears that if one wanted small stones could be mounted in the center of the flowers, for now, it looks like the center of the flower! There is an additional very small hole in the leaf that looks like it was added to place on something else then not used. It was not put there from testing, we know as we have tested it. It seems more noticeable in the pictures than it is in person. It is not a problem and this piece is in excellent condition. The box it is shown is a pin box and it does come with the box, which is not crooked I just did not bend the hinges or both side down the same. It is a great piece and would be ideal for a young woman or teenager.
